Unformatted text preview: E* will increase exponentially. Hence the rate of the process will increase exponentially. Now we can understand that in general, the rate of a reaction for any thermally activated process is given by the Arrhenius Rate Equation : Rate = C e q / kT = C e qNav / kNavT = C e Q/ RT (q is energy per atom, Q is energy per mole)...
