Arrhenius Equation

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Thermodynamics

Arrhenius Equation is the temperature dependance of the reaction rate constant.

FORMULA

\(k = Ae \frac {-Ea}{RT_a}\)

Where:

\(k\) = rate constant

\(A\) = frequency factor (different for every reaction) 

\(e\) = natural log base

\(E_a\) = activation energy

\(R\) = universal gas constant

\(T_a\) = absolute temperature
