Step 1
1 of 2

The rate constant kk of a reaction is dependent on temperature. The relationship of kk and temperature is shown in the Arrhenius equation:

k=AeEaRT\begin{aligned}k = Ae^{\frac{-E_{a}}{RT}}\end{aligned}

where AA stands for the frequency factor, EaE_{a} stands for the activation energy, RR stands for the gas constant and TT stands for the temperature.
