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:

    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.
