Temperature--Arrhenius Equation Relates rate constant, k, to T: • A = factor to account for steric effects • k = rate constant (R,T are old friends) • taking (ln) of both sides: k = Ae ! E a RT ln k = ln A - E a R ! T = ln A - E a R " # $ % 1 T " # $ %

Temperature--Arrhenius Equation ln k = ln A - E a R ! T = ln A - E a R " # $ % 1 T " # $ % So let’s plot ln k vs. 1/T Slope should be -E a /R and intercept should be ln A Let’s see what this looks like with an example:

Unformatted text preview: So for the equation: N 2 O 5 (g) -> 2NO 2 (g) + 1/2 O 2 (g) Now let’s plot these data!
