We’re being asked to determine the factors that would determine whether a collision between two molecules will lead to a chemical reaction.
Recall that in collision theory, we look at all the different factors that have to be taken into account whenever reactant molecules collide in order for products to be successfully created.
This involves the Arrhenius Equation shown below:
A = Frequency Factor
Ea = Energy of Activation
R = Gas Constant = 8.314 J/(mol∙K)
T = Temperature
What factors determine whether a collision between two molecules will lead to a chemical reaction?
