It is proposed that shock wave dynamics within the gas of a small bubble explain sonoluminescence, the emission of visible radiation. As the bubble radius oscillates, shock waves develop from spherical sound waves created inside the gas bubble. As any such shock propagates toward the center, it strengthens and, upon convergence and subsequent reflection, temperature of gas inside bubble increases dramatically in such a way that it can produce plasma. Since main radiation product in exploding epoch, nonadiabatic condition for imploding shock wave cool plasma and cause exploding shock wave can not sufficiently rise temperature to produce radiation. In this work we compare cooling time for plasma by bermsstrahlung radiation with collapsing time for the imploding shock wave . We find a constraint on radius of bubble with respect to temperature of water. This constraint condition explains experimental results as to, why the cold water is fine for SL.
