Computer Animation of a Chemical Reaction.
Eaker, Charles W.; Jacobs, Edwin L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n11 p939-41 Nov 1982
Taking a prototype chemical reaction (molecular hydrogen plus hydrogen atom), constructs an accurate semiempirical, generalized diatomics-in-molecules potential energy surface, calculates motions of these atoms on this surface using REACTS trajectory program, and presents results as moving picture on a microcomputer graphics system. Provides trajectory calculations and reaction animation on a microcomputer. (Author/JN)
