|Diagram illustrating the relative contributions in unimolecular dissociation of an ion, for example, by homolytic cleavage of a single bond, and fragmentation following rearrangement. The diagram is in two parts with a common horizontal axis representing the internal energy of the ion. The vertical axis in one part of the diagram shows the two types of rate constant on a logarithmic scale, and that for the other portion of the diagram indicates the distribution function for internal energy of the ion.|
