Abstract

The frame distortion experienced by a non-polar polyatomic molecule colliding with thermal He was investigated by classical computation. The polyatomics were linear ABA molecules and tetrahedral molecules. It was concluded that in cases of practical importance the dipoles arising from frame distortion are probably comparable to those due to electronic overlap.
