Calculations of charge transfer total cross section in proton collisions with CH are presented at collision energies 10 eV < E < 6.25 keV. Two-state calculations using the sudden approximation for rotation and vibration do not show significant differences with respect to the simple Franck-Condon approximation, which is appropriate for energies above 200 eV.
