I have a molecule with a certain kinetic, vibrational, and rotational energy.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It absorbs a photon which excites a vibrational mode.

I want to find an equation that describes how the molecules reaction rate with another molecule might change given the added vibrational energy.

Is there a name for this type of equation? If I wanted to pick up a textbook to learn it what would the subject of that textbook be?
