Abstract

We consider the generalization of the kinematic apse to nonreactive polyatom–polyatom impulsive collisions, dissociative atom–molecule impulsive collisions,and (partially) impulsive reactive atom–diatom collisions. Appropriate generalizations of the kinematic apse are obtained along which there is a classical propensity for preserving the projection of the total intrinsic spin. In the case of reactive scattering, we discuss several different situations for which such a propensity occurs. For reactive systems in which no such propensity exists, the analysis may still provide a basis for classifying reactions.
