The theory outlined in the first part of the study is applied to an analysis of self-broadening and broadening by foreign gases of spectral lines for a number of symmetric top molecules with a high potential barrier to the inversion vibration. In all cases considered, the results obtained are in better agreement with the experimental data than previous theoretical results; however, in some cases, the discrepancy is rather large. Possible reasons are discussed and the acute need for experimental data obtained with modern equipment is noted.
