Rate Constant for Temperatures

As you are aware, temperature affects the rate of reactions. You have the following reaction: 2A + B = C (equilibrium is = sign). For this reaction at 25 degrees Celsius, the forward rate constant, kf, is larger than the reverse rate constant, kf (i.e., kf = 10 to the 3rd x kr). Would there be a temperature at which this reaction could be run that where kr becomes greater than kf? Please explain the answer.

Solution Summary

This solution explains whether there would be a temperature at a specified reaction that could be run that where kr becomes greater than kf.
