## Reaction rate constantIn chemical kinetics a ## Additional recommended knowledgeFor a chemical reaction Here [X] denotes, for a reaction between liquids, gases, or solutes, the concentration of X; for a reaction taking place at a boundary it would denote something like moles of X per area. In this equation k(T) is the reaction rate constant that depends on temperature. The exponents
T the molecules have energies according to a Boltzmann distribution, one can expect the proportion of collisions with energy greater than E to vary with _{a}e. ^{-Ea/RT}A is the pre-exponential factor or frequency factor.
The Arrhenius equation gives the quantitative basis of the relationship between the activation energy and the reaction rate at which a reaction proceeds. ## See also |
