In the preceding paper, general equations were established for the motions of chains confined to a tetrahedral lattice. In the present paper, bond orientation correlation and autocorrelation functions are explicitly calculated for the case where only three-bond elementary motions are considered. Effects due to the chain end are analyzed and the relaxation time distribution function is established. The expressions obtained reflect the influence of the chain structure. Finally, to characterize the dynamic behavior of chains in orientation relaxation experiments, the notion of an independent kinetic segment is proposed.
