A complete set of the parameters retrieved from the processing is presented (hard collisions are mainly large-angle scattering collisions [9] that lead to establishing the equilibrium distribution of molecules over velocities after each collision; soft collisions are caused by classical scattering on small angles less 0.3 rad [10], and the diffraction scattering collisions occur when scattering angles are ~0.01 rad [8-10].) (Except for line intensities S disclosing wide range of values, which is typical for PhA measurements.) in Table 2.
