Reaction Rate Constant using Arrhenius Equation – formula – examples – calculation – calculator
In 1889, a researcher Svante Arrhenius proposed the Arrhenius equation. Arrhenius equation relates the reaction rate with temperature.
According to Arrhenius equation, an increase of temperature of a reaction results in an increase in the reaction rate.
Normally, the reaction rate is doubled when we increase the temperature to 10 oC.
Formula of Reaction Rate Constant calculator
K = A × e (-Ea / (R×T))
Frequency Factor (A), Activation Energy(Ea), Temperature(T)
K = Rate Constant, A = Frequency Factor, Ea = Activation Energy, R = Universal Gas Constant (8.314 × 10-3 kJ mol-1 K-1), T = Temperature
