  Charge exchange in H + + H2 O collisions was investigated theoretically at projectile energies
below 50 keV/amu. The electron nuclear dynamics (END) method was used to analyze the collision
process. Total and differential cross section were calculated averaging over particular orientations
of the water molecule. Comparison of the present charge exchange cross section with experimental
data shows a good agreement for energies between 10 and 50 keV/amu. At energies below 10
keV/amu, there is a discrepancy between the present theoretical calculation and the experimental
data.
