Figure 5

A slice through the x - y (initial orbital) plane during the passage of the supernova shock through a \(\pmb{1.0 M_{\odot }}\) companion star after a 1 foe supernova in a primary star of \(\pmb{3.0 M_{\odot }}\) at a distance of \(\pmb{4 M_{\odot }}\) . The snapshots correspond to times of (a) 433 s, (b) 1028 s, (c) 1628 s and (d) 2028 s. The shock enters the companion star from the left. The black vectors show the magnitude of the velocity projected onto the orbital plane (and with the orbital velocity of the companion subtracted) for a small random sample of all the particles removed from the companion. In each case, a reference vector (red, boxed) is given in the upper left corner; these correspond to (a) \(1 \times10^{4} \text{ km s}^{-1}\), (b) \(3 \times10^{3} \text{ km s}^{-1}\), (c) \(2 \times 10^{3} \text{ km s}^{-1}\) and (d) \(1 \times10^{3} \text{ km s}^{-1}\).
