The value of K

Postby Matthew Casillas 1C » Sun Mar 03, 2019 11:11 pm

Will "K", the rate constant, be unique for each reaction or is it a set number?

K changes with temperature, so for each reaction, when the reaction occurs at different temperatures, K is different.

K is dependent upon the temperature. So as long as the reactions occur at different temperatures, the k values will be different.

K is not constant per reaction because it fluctuates wit temperature.

The k values vary at different temperatures.

k is unique for each individual reaction as it changes with temperature.
