Abstract

Single electron capture and single ionization total cross sections in collisions of proton with ethylene are calculated for an energy range 25 keV E 150 keV, using the classical trajectory Monte Carlo method. Multi-center model potentials are employed to represent the interaction of the active electron on each molecular orbital with the C2H\(_{4}^{+}\) core. The results are compared with experimental results for single electron capture.
