Abstract : We have solved two-temperature (ion and electron) equations for rotating as well as for radial flows in Newtonian as well as for pseudo-Newtonian potential. The Coulomb interactions between the protons and electrons have been considered in this study, which is mainly responsible for transfer of energy from proton to the electron and have also incorporated radiative processes such as bremsstrahlung, synchrotron and Comptonization which are mainly responsible for the cooling of electrons. We have concluded that these radiative processes lead to efficient cooling of electrons such that its temperature reduces in comparison with that of the protons and hence we obtain two-temperature profiles for the said populations. The spectral properties have also been presented here.
