Abstract

A quasiequilibrium expression is given relating sums over reaction cross sections to properties of activated complexes. When applied to recent classical‐mechanical computer data on the H+H_2 reaction to test the quasiequilibrium assumption, reasonable agreement is found over the range considered. Suggestions are made with respect to extending the range and to presenting the computer data in a modified form. The latter would permit testing a stronger statement of the hypothesis. The equations are used elsewhere to formulate a statistical‐dynamical theory for chemical‐reaction cross sections.
