Abstract : One of the Keneshea computer codes (see AD-424 173) was adapted for use on the Ballistic Research Laboratories Electronic Scientific Computer. Using this modified code, reaction rate equations were solved for the following 15 species: e, NO2(-), O(-), O2(-), O3(-), N2(+), NO(+), O(+), O2(+), N, NO, N2O, NO2, O, and O3. The calculations were made for a 4:1 mixture of N2 and O2 at 1 torr total pressure and 300K. Rate constants as given by Keneshea and Fowler (see AD-646 975) were used. The solutions are presented as number densities versus time after the start of the irradiating electron beam. A description of the modified code is presented. (Author)
