## Monte Carlo simulation of electron thermalization in gases. II. Subexcitation electrons in molecular hydrogen

The Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) of the thermalization of low-energy electrons (epsilon< or approx. =0.1 eV) due to the rotationally inelastic and elastic collisions in normal H/sub 2/ (J. Chem. Phys. 79, 3367 (1983), referred to as I) is extended to high-energy subexcitation electrons (epsilonapprox.1 eV) by taking into account the vibrationally inelastic collisions and using available experimental cross section data. The MCS is performed for the thermalization of subexcitation electrons with the initial Maxwell, delta function, or Platzman velocity distribution at the initial effective electron temperature 10/sup 3/< or =T/sub e/(0)< or =3 x 10/sup 4/ K in normalmore »
