Abstract:

The use of reaction rate constants to calculate changes in chemical composition usually is involved in systems having a Boltzmann kinetic energy distribution. Since many data for such reactions are obtained on monoenergetic systems, it is necessary to convert such data to the more useable form. Equations for such conversions are developed in this report. General expressions requiring graphical integrations to obtain rate constants are first obtained. Some specific relations between cross section and energy are used and integrated expression are then obtained which, when applicable, give analytical expressions for rate constants, Any of the expressions are applicable only to the exact states for which the data were obtained.
