Arrhenius Equation Chemistry Notes

Arrhenius Equation :

Arrhenius explained the dependence of rate of reaction on temperature.
According to him,
k = Ae-Ea/RT
Here, A = Arrhenius constant (Pre-exponential factor)
R = Gas constant
Ea = Activation energy
e-Ea/RT = Boltzmenn constant

If rate constant of a reaction is k1 at T1 temperature and k2 at T2 temperature, then
We know that,
