Over the years the study of collision processes in nonreactive systems has been very useful in characterizing intermolecular forces. Much of the available information on the importance of various kinds of forces between neutral molecules, for example, is the result of studies of diffusion and viscosity in nonreactive systems (Hirschfelder, Curtiss and Bird, 1954).
