Abstract * : CMEs are large scale magnetized plasma ejection from the corona in to the interplanetary medium. The study of CMEs is important for space weather effects. CMEs are also responsible for the Geomagnetic Storms. The propagation of CMEs in the medium between Sun and Earth called as interplanetary medium is studied. We have solved theoretical drag model equations. We have examined the characteristics like speed and travel time in the space between the Sun and Earth. Also, the transit time of the CME to reach the Earth is evaluated and compared with the observed values.
