Time-dependent quantum scattering calculations using the semirigid vibrating rotor target (SVRT) model were carried out for the reaction H+CH4. Focus was on the reaction probability, cross-section, and rate constant from the initial ground state of the reagent. Results indicate that quantitatively reliable dynamic results can be obtained using the SVRT model in just a few mathematical dimensions.
