Abstract : A statistical collisional energy transfer probability related to Boltzmann forms is assumed. Single collisions between vibrationally excited substrate molecules with heat bath molecules are considered. The dependence of the average energy per collision transferred up, down and overall on the initial energy content, on the temperature and on the size of the bath and substrate molecules is calculated and compared with data in the literature.
