Reading the description of the Arrhenius equation from Wikipedia:
...One example comes from the collision theory of chemical reactions, developed by Max Trautz and William Lewis in the years 1916-18. In this theory, molecules are supposed to react if they collide with a relative kinetic energy along their lines-of-center that exceeds Ea. This leads to an expression very similar to the Arrhenius equation.
I was wondering how to derive the Arrhenius equation from the mentioned hard-sphere collision theory. I tried to do so but got a totally different expression from the Arrhenius equation. The original derivation here written by Max Trautz seems to be in German, but I cannot read German. Does anyone know how to do the derivation?
