Rate Constant

Postby Joyce Gu 1E » Sat Mar 17, 2018 5:49 pm

When looking at a reaction graph, how do you determine the greatest rate constant?

The greatest rate constant will be the faster process. Usually the size of the energy barrier or activation energy of a process will determine the rate. The lower the barrier, the faster the rate.
