Abstract

Calculated triple differential cross sections are presented for the ionization of NH3 and CH4 molecules by electron impact. The cross sections are determined for symmetrical coplanar and perpendicular geometrical arrangements. The obtained results reproduce in most cases the main features observed in the experimental data for both geometries.
