An analytical solution of one dimensional equilibrium and frozen flow is presented. The "Idealized Recombination Relation" for volume electron-ion recombination is applied to frozen flow to obtain a stepwise solution. Calculations are made on partially ionized helium to illustrate the deviation between a frozen type flow and an equilibrium type flow.
