We need to use the linearized Arrhenius Equation:
k = rate constant
Ea = activation energy (in J/mol)
R = gas constant (8.314 J/mol • K)
T = temperature (in K)
A = Arrhenius constant or frequency factor
Consider this reaction data:
A -> products
If you were going to graphically determine the activation energy of this reaction, what points would you plot?
Determine the rise, run, and slope of the line formed by these points
What is the activation energy of this reaction?
