The dynamics of Ar+CH4Ni{111} collision induced desorption was studied using the classical trajectory simulations. The system's potential energy surface and different types of desorption trajectories were identified, and the partitioning of the available energy to the different types of product energies was evaluated. Most of the available product energy is partitioned to CH4 translation and to the Nickel surface and argon atoms.
