Recently an extensive series of measurements has been presented for the angular distributions of oxygen molecules scattered from a graphite surface. Incident translational energies ranged from 291 to 614 meV with surface temperatures from 150 to 500 K. The measurements were taken with a fixed angle of 90° between the source beam and the detector and the angular distributions consisted of a single broad peak with the most probable intensity located at an angle slightly larger than the 45° specular position. Analysis with the hard cubes model for atom-surface scattering indicated that the scattering is primarily a single collision event with a surface having a collective effective mass much larger than a single carbon atom. Limited analysis with a classical diatomic molecular scattering theory was also presented. In this paper a more complete analysis using the classical diatomic molecular scattering theory is presented. The energy and temperature dependence of the observed angular distributions are well described as single collision events with a surface having an effective mass of 1.8 carbon graphite rings. In agreement with the earlier analysis and with other experiments, this suggests a large cooperative response of the carbon atoms in the outermost graphene layer.
