A four-fluid treatment of oblique C-type shocks in magnetized dark molecular clouds is presented. The four fluids are those consisting of neutrals, ions, electrons and negatively charged spherical grains of uniform size and composition. The charged particles couple to the neutrals by frictional interaction and their motion is described by the drift approximation. In an oblique shock, a current is set up which has a component parallel to the magnetic field component transverse to the shock… CONTINUE READING
