Abstract : Rate constants are calculated for the vibrational relaxation of H2(v = 1) by H-atoms. A classical three-dimensional trajectory calculation is carried out to determine if both reactive and nonreactive collisions play an important role in the dynamics of this reaction on a London-Eyring-Polanyi-Sato (LEPS) potential energy hypersurface. The results of this calculation are compared with available experimental data. (Author)
