CO was chosen for its theoretically predicted behaviour. Application of the $Schwartz-Slawsky-Herzfeld^{1}$ theory predicts a very long lifetime for pure CO, with a high dependence on reduced collision mass, low mass giving shorter lifetime. Special interest was directed toward $CO-H_{2}$ mixture, because of the predicted effect of $H_{2}$ and the fact that $H_{2}$ is an impurity in commercial CO. The lifetimes at room temperature for the collision $CO+$M, extrapolated to one atmosphere pressure of M. varied from 1.6 microseconds for $M=H_{2}$ to 190 microseconds for $M= CO$.” en_US dc.format.extent 90694 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title VIBRATIONAL RELAXATION IN CARBON MONOXIDE BY THE SPECTROPHONE $METHOD^{*}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
