Whats the relationship between Temperature and Activation Energy? If one decreases what happens to the other? If one increases what happens to the other?

Temperature and activation energy are independent of each other. However, temperature affects rate. So, if temperature increases, it can more easily surpass the activation energy. If temperature decreases, it'll be harder to surpass the activation energy. Temperature does not higher or lower the activation energy, just the rate in which it can surpass it.
