kinetic activity factor

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.K03396
A factor involving activity coefficients that appears as a multiplier in the rate equation. For a @[email protected] reaction the factor is \[\frac{y_{\text{A}}\ y_{\text{B}}}{y_{\ddagger}}\] where \(y_{\text{A}}\), \(y_{\text{B}}\) and \(y_{\ddagger }\) are the activity coefficients for the reactants A and B and the @[email protected], respectively. For a @[email protected] reaction the factor is \[\frac{y_{\text{A}}}{y_{\ddagger}}\] and for a trimolecular reaction it is \[\frac{y_{\text{A}}\ y_{\text{B}}\ y_{\text{C}}}{y_{\ddagger}}\]
