Default about activation energy
Posts: n/a
Hi, everyone. I'm simulating plasma spray, which involves the following reactions: Ar(+)+e=Ar, H(+)+e=H, H+H=H2. But I don't know the activation energy and Pre-exponential Factors of the 3 reactions. I've searched them in the internet, but I got nothing. Could you do me a favor? Thanks a lot!

The H2 + M = 2H + M rate can be found in the GRI mechanism at . Also, it can be found in almost any issue of any combustion journal, such as Combustion and Flame, as part of some detailed kinetics mechanism.

The ionic reactions are harder to find, but should be available in the literature on plasma torches.

Try and see if you can find any useful information from one of the downloadable *.dat files.
