Abstract:

Measurements are made for the first time on cyclopropane of the dynamics of collisional relaxation of vibrational distributions of reacting molecules at high energies, and at high temperatures. This is the same as the determination of the mean first passage time tau of molecules with respect to an absorbing barrier. A simple technqiue, called the Variable Encounter Method has been devised for this purpose. Author
