The mean free paths are computed from the momentum transfer cross sections associated with collisions of protons with Li, Be, and B and for Li, Li+, Be+, and B+ colliding with atomic hydrogen, for center of mass energies between 0.0001 and 10 000 eV. The elastic and viscosity cross sections are also calculated for these collision systems. A fully quantum mechanical approach has been used up to 100 eV along with a more approximate, quasiclassical method between ∼0.1 and 10 000 eV.
