%X Three-dimensional molecule motion equations of classical mechanics are solved to study rotational relaxation of nitrogen. The problem of relaxation is treated by the Monte Carlo method. The investigation is concerned with dependence of the process on interaction-potential parameters and initial conditions: (1) a type of a rotational energy distribution function and (2) rotational and translational temperatures.
