Abstract

A unified multi-term solution of Boltzmann's equation is used to investigate transport properties and velocity distribution functions of charged particles in gases under the influence of an electric field. The effects of the charged-particle to neutral-particle mass ratio on the convergence of the polynomials expansion techniques employed are addressed physically.
