    Determining the Activation Energy of a Reaction
    The rate of a reaction depends on the temperature at which it is run. As the temperature increases, the molecules move faster and therefore collide more frequently. The molecules also carry more kinetic energy. Thus, the proportion of collisions that can overcome ...
