Temperature Dependence of k • Rate constants (k) for many reactions vary with temperature according to the Arrhenius Equation: RT E a Ae k / = RT E A k a = ln ln Plot of ln k vs 1/T is linear. Slope = -E a /R Intercept = lnA. E a = Activation Energy A = “A factor” = Pre- exponential factor

1/2 ) • Time taken for reactant concentration to decrease to half of initial value. • For first order reaction: k k t 693 . 0 2 ln 2 / 1 = = Half life (t 1/2 ) is constant for first order reaction. Tritium ( 3 H) decays with a half life (t 1/2 ) of 12.5 years. What is k in s -1 ? How long does it take for 1.00 g to decay: a) to 0.25 g? b) to 0.010 g?
