|Abstract||S>The kinetic theory of reactions of atoms of high translational energy undergoing moderating collisions was further developed. The nature and lialidity of the assumptions underlying the treatment and the range of applicability of the final expressions are discussed in detail. It is shown that experimental data on the total probability of reaction in which the hot atom is chemically bound can be used to evaluate two fundamental quantities: the reactivity integral, or reaction probability integrated over energy on a logarithmic scale (I); and a measure of average energy transfer in collisions of hot atoms with the reactive species ( alpha ). The treatment involves no variable or arbitrary parameters. As a result sufficient data may be obtained to provide stringent internal consistency tests of the applicability of the model and its assumptions to any given system. Two types of systems are specifically treated: a single reactant moderated by inert gas; and competitive reactions in systems of two reactants. The relative utility of such systems for determination of the basic parameters alpha and I is discussed. Examples of the use of the expressions developed to calculate average logarithmic collisional energy loss ( alpha ) are given. Recent data on interaction of hot F with CF/sub 4/ and on hot H in mixtures of D/ sub 2/ and CH/sub 4/ are used. The alpha 's derived indicate that moderating collisions in these media are highly inelastic. The hypothesis that CH/sub 4/ is a better moderator than D/sub 2/ was quantitatively confirmed. The implications of the findings for the mechanism of hot-atom processes are briefly discussed. (auth)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
