Cl- + CH3Br -->ClCH3 + Br- SN2 Reaction

The following are animations of trajectories for reactants with different amounts and types of energies. The reactant energy includes a relative translational energy, Erel, between Cl- + CH3Br, and a temperature, Tvr, for the CH3Br vibrational and rotational energies.
