Abstract: A Monte Carlo simulation technique has been used to test the accuracy of electron energy distribution functions and transport coefficients calculated using conventional numerical solutions of Boltzmann's equation based on a two-term approximation. The tests have been applied to a number of model gases, some of which have characteristics close to those of real gases, and include cases where the scattering is anisotropic. The results show that, in general, previous application of the numerical solution to real gases has been valid.
