Free energy and entropy were calculated for molecules of different shapes in gas phase and under small pressure. The values of the thermodynamic functions were found strongly dependent on the molecular shape. The results obtained were applied to predict the route of internal energy deactivation as well as the preferred form of the molecules examined.
