Activation energy

IB Chemistry: Activation energy

The relationship between the value of k, the rate constant, and temperature is given by the Arrhenius equation:k = A exp(–Ea/RT)where k is the rate constant, A is another constant sometimes known as the Arrhenius constant but more usually as the frequency factor (or pre-exponential factor), Ea is the activation energy for the reaction, R is the gas constant and T is the temperature in Kelvin.In theory students should...
