Paper Abstract Simple analytical expressions for the cross sections of nl to n'l' transitions from Rydberg-neutral inelastic collisions are obtained on the basis of the free electron model for electron-perturber scattering. The dependences of the electron-perturber scattering amplitude on the electron momentum and scattering angle are allowed for. The analytical results agree well with available numerical calculations. The analysis of the equations obtained yields a conclusion that the cross sections at l<or=l' depend weakly on l and l' for degenerate states and are proportional to the statistical weights of the final states for transitions with large energy defects.
