Classical Trajectory Monte Carlo method (CTMC) with the modal interaction potential  has been used to simulate the differential, total and partial capture cross sections in proton-oxygen atom collisions in the energy range of 0.5–200 keV. An interesting feature of the calculated differential cross sections (DCS) curve below the scattering angle 0.1○ is the presence of oscillations showing asymmetry in angular positions. The oscillations in the partial cross sections are explained in terms of swapping effect. The DCS and total cross sections are found to be in good agreement with the experimental as well as other theoretical results.
