Momentum-Transfer Theory

Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 105)


Chapter  2 presented a somewhat rapid review of various types of drift-tube experiments that have been and are being used to study gaseous ion mobility, diffusion, and reaction. In the remainder of this book, we consider the theories behind such experiments.
