Abstract : One of the laboratory tools that is particularly well suited for studying ion-molecule reactions is the drift tube. Woo and Whealton have recently published a versatile analytical transport model for two converting charged species in a drift tube. Unfortunately, the original publication contained several errors, and in addition, the mathematical expressions contained in the solution of their model are quite complicated, with the result that a direct approach to the programming of their solution is unnecessarily difficult. The report gathers in one location the corrected model, the information necessary for its use, our mathematical modifications for computational simplification, and the solution of their model recast in terms of the mathematical modifications.
