Abstract:

This work was mainly concerned with two problems in the theory of dissociation and recombination of diatomic molecules. The first problem was to make a quantitative statement of the conditions under which it is valid to say that k sub dk sub r k sub d where k sub d and k sub r are the rate constants for far from equilibrium dissociation and recombination and k sub d is the thermodynamic equilibrium constant for the reaction. The second problem was to determine the effect on k sub d of the variation of transition probabilities and vibrational level spacings with the angular momentum of the molecule. Author
