A classical approach is used to calculate deflection angle and cross-sections for elastic collisions between protons and the noble gas atoms. Characteristic integrals which determine the collision rates needed for the kinetic description of these processes in a background plasma with Maxwellian ion distribution are calculated. Data fits are presented for the total cross-section, the diffusion cross-section, the viscosity cross-section, and the characteristic integrals which are needed both for the kinetic and hydrodynamic description.
