General equations governing the hydrodynamic behavior of an ideal compressible fluid in which chemical reactions and internal relaxations proceed are formulated. For one‐dimensional flow the equations are transformed to characteristic form, in which the ``frozen'' or high‐frequency sound velocity plays a role analogous to the unambiguous sound velocity in the nonreactive case.
