Assuming a stationary, radial, spherically symmetric solar wind and a radial magnetic field direction in the vicinity of the sun, an equation of motion for ions heavier than protons in the solar wind is derived. The general properties of this equation are discussed and the results of numerical integrations are given. These results are based on the assumption of maxwellian velocity distribution functions for electrons, protons and ions, but the effects of first order deviations from such… CONTINUE READING
