NEET Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Questions Solved


How does a change in temperature affect the rate of a reaction? How can this effect on the rate constant of a reaction be represented quantitatively?

The rate constant of  a reaction increases with increase  of temperature  and becomes nearly double for every 10 rise in temperature. 

the effect can be represented quantitatively by 

Arhenius equation

     K = Ae-Ea/RT

Where, Ea = Activation energy of the reaction         

             A = Frequency factor
