Using two different crossed-beams high-resolution electron attachment instruments (employing either a trochoidal electron monochromator or a hemispherical electron monochromator) we have determined the cross section curve for H [iopmath latex="$^-$"] - [/iopmath] production from H2 via the 4 eV resonance at two different temperatures. These relative partial cross sections have been calibrated by comparing present values for the 14 eV resonance with absolute total cross sections determined previously. Taking into account the experimental energy distribution and the rotational excitation and its influence on the cross section shape we obtain very good agreement with theoretical predictions in terms of both the shape and magnitude of this resonance peak.
