Abstract : The major reactions normally encountered in flow field re-entry calculations for the oxygen nitrogen system are reviewed and a rate constant value for each reaction is recommended. Collisional ionization processes, charge exchange reactions and attachment-detachment reactions are included. Rate constant coefficients to fit the equation k = aTb e-c/T are reported in tabular form for the selected rate constant. The data are also graphed as log k vs T(K). In all, over twenty forward and reverse reactions are reviewed. Additionally, a large number of rate constant values for reactions which also effect flow field calculations are given. (Author)
