Final-Collision Theory

Postby Veritas Kim 2L » Fri Mar 16, 2018 1:15 pm

I understand that we need to know the overall relationship between reactions, temperature, kinetic energy, and activation energy in the collision theory. Do we also need to know the collision frequency, mean relative speed equations, and steric factors as well?

Can someone please explain the difference between the collision theory and the transition state theory?

Collision theory states that molecules need to collide with the correct orientation and with enough kinetic energy for a reaction to occur. Transition state theory builds on the collision theory. Transition state theory says that a reaction follows a specific pathway and at the transition state, bonds are broken and formed simultaneously.
