Abstract : The work is divided into two major parts; (1) a study of electron-molecule and molecule-molecule collisions at energies of a few volts or less, with applications to atmospheric reactions; and (2) a study of ion-molecule and molecule-molecule collisions in the range of 200-2000 ev energy, with applications to meteor physics.
