The recombination of diatomic molecules and its effects in expanding gas flows

Pope, Russell Leslie


Approximate solutions for the one dimensional expanding flow of an ideal dissociating gas, which is initially in a frozen state, are compared with exact numerical solutions and the dependence of the flow variables on the rate of recombination is discussed. The rate constant for recombination is related to the cross-section for dissociation, and approximate forms are found for the cross-section in terms of the differential cross-section for the elastic scattering of two particles using...[Show more]
