Abstract : A theoretical study has been made of the mechanism for the transfer of traslational energy into internal energy by moleuclar collisions. In particular, the research considered the interaction between molecules which can combine chemically to form a covalent bond. Such an interaction is typified by the collision of a proton and a diatomic hydrogne molecule which can combine to form a stable hydrogne molecule ion, and exhibits all the desired characteristics of the phenomenon under study with a minimum of extraneous effects.
