    The variation of rate constant with temperature can be explained using the Arrhenius relationship

    k = A exp(-Ea/RT)

    T is the Temperature, meaured in kelvin. As a rule of thumb, a temperature increase of 10° causes a the reaction speed to double.

    R is the gas constant.The value of the gas constant,R = 8.31JK-1mol-1.

    Ea is the ...
