Probability of excitation of vibrations and dissociation of diatomic molecules

  • B. V. Kuksenko

A numerical solution is given for the dynamic problem of collision between an atom and a diatomic molecule for the case of O2 and Ar within the framework of classical mechanics. The molecule is approximated by the Rydberg-Klein-Riess oscillator. The probabilities of change in the vibrational state and dissociation of the molecule are calculated by the method of varying the initial conditions.
