Chapter 13 Lecture 3 Theories of Chemical Kinetics Collision Theory Transition State Theory Temperature Effects Arrhenius equation k = Ae -Ea/RT Rate constant k is a constant, but does change with temperature R is 8.3 Joules/mole-K At higher Temperatures, A changes, A is composed of Zp 1)Collision frequency increases: Z 2) Probability factor increases: p This is the probability that collision will lead to reaction 3)Zp is the number of collisions per second leading to product.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
