Qualitative interpretation=A05-m5a

The differential cross section for chemi-ionization in K + Br2 K+ + Br2- collisions [The interpretation depends on the results (link type: 'DEPENDS ON'; target:  A05-m4bi1] is interpreted qualitatively in this module with a simple classical atom-atom model for ion-pair formation in molecular collisions, with the impact parameter approximation [ (link type: 'DEPENDS ON/detailed in'; target:  A05-m3c], via the general shape of the deflection function.

Most of the general shape of the experimental K + BR2 cross-section curve can indeed be explained using the classical model [To the elementary module (link type: 'CONTAINS/is detailed in/contains/is specified in'; target:  A05-m5ai)]. For small angles a quantum mechanical explanation is suggested [To the elementary module  (link type: 'CONTAINS/is detailed in/ is specified in'; target:  A05-m5aii].
