### Collision Model

How does the collision model and activated complex model relate to the rate law?

The collision model explains why most collisions between molecules do not result in a chemical reaction. Also, in a first order reaction there is one colliding species that influences the rate while in a second order reaction there are two species colliding and so on.

What's the difference between the collision model and the activated complex model?
