Abstract:

A calculation of the ionization cross section and the excitation cross section to the 2S and 2P states of hydrogen atoms by collision with electrons is carried through by the use of an impulse approximation. Results are then compared to the experimental data and to various other theoretical calculations. The cross sections obtained compare favorably with experiment. The calculations carried out by these methods are no more complicated than the usual approximation methods and are easily adaptable for use with more complicated atoms. Author
