In this work, radius of shock wave of plasma plume (R) and speed of plasma particles (U) have been calculated theoretically using Matlab program. Both parameters (R and U) were calculated using Sedov-Taylor model in Ar background gas. The effect of laser pulse energy (Es) on radius of shock wave of plasma plume and speed of plasma particles has been investigated in this study. Also the temporal profile of both R and U has been studied. In conclusion, as Es increased, plasma plume shock wave radius (R) and plasma species speed (U) increased. The cylindrical explosion of plasma has been assumed in this study of Sedov-Taylor model.
