Transport Properties of Ground State Nitrogen Atoms

Abstract

Transport properties of dilute monatomic gases depend on the two body atom-atom interaction potential. When two ground state (4S) nitrogen atoms interact, they can follow any of four potential energy curves corresponding to the N2 molecule; the X 1∑ g+, A 3∑u+, 5∑g+, and 7∑ u+ curves. Transport collision integrals for the 1∑g+ and 3∑u+ states have been calculated by representing the potentials for these states with the Hulburt-Hirschfelder potential. The 5∑ g+ state has a large local maximum which requires changes in the computational procedure used previously; a modified Hulburt-Hirschfelder potential has been used to represent the potential for this state. Collision integrals for the 7∑u+ state have been obtained by direct use of a recent theoretical potential for this state. The collision integrals are compared with results obtained in previous studies. © 1983 American Institute of Physics.
