The electron-impact excitation and dissociation cross sections for the C 1Πu, c 3Πu, B′ 1Σu+, and E(F) 1Σg+ states of H2 have been calculated within the distorted-wave approximation. The distorted waves are obtained as solutions of the static-exchange potential field of the ground electronic state. Both differential and integral inelastic cross sections are reported and compared with other calculated results and available experimental data.
