Taking the log of both sides: ln Rate = ln C + -Q/(RT) Rate log Rate = log C + [-Q/(2.3R)] (1/T) (log scale) y = b + mx (y = log Rate b = log C m = -Q x =1 ) 2.3R T slope = -Q 2.3R 1/T The significance of this is that knowing the process rate at any two temperatures allows the rate at a third temperature to be determined. Additionally, knowledge of a process rate at any temperature and of the activation energy

Unformatted text preview: allows the rate at any other temperature to be determined. A common use of the Arrhenius plot is to obtain a value of the activation energy for a process by taking rate data and obtaining the slope of the plot....
