Quantal 3‐D reactive scattering calculations for the F + H2 → HF (vf) + H reaction, with nonzero as well as zero total angular momentum, J = 0, 1, and 2, and a realistic potential surface, are reported. The generalized Newton variational principle with an ℒ2 expansion of the reactive complex amplitude density is used for the calculations. The results provide an opportunity to study whether the trends in reaction probabilities observed in earlier, converged F + H2 quantal 3‐D reactive scattering results for zero total angular momentum also hold for J > 0. Reaction probabilities and delay times are reported for J = 0 and 1 for a fine grid of energies over the experimental energy range, and converged reaction probabilities are also reported for J = 2. Reaction probabilities greater than 0.001 are stable to 1%.
