  • Q:

    The Arrhenius equation, shown below, is a description of the relationship between the rate constant, k, the activation energy of the reaction, and the temperature in Kelvin.

    Here, A and R are constants. For ratios of EA/RT that are greater than 1, if the constant R were half of its actual value, what would happen to the rate constant k?


     

    A

    It would increase by less than double.

    B

    It would increase by more than double.

    C

    It would decrease to less than half of its current value.

    D

    It would decrease to more than half of its current value.
