### Homework Problem 15.99

"15.99 Which of the following plots will be linear? (a) [A] against time for a reaction that is first order in A; (b) [A] against time for a reaction that is zero order in A; (c) ln[A] against time for a reaction that is first order in A; (d) 1/[A] against time for a reaction that is second order in A; (e) k against temperature;
(f) initial rate against [A] for a reaction that is first order in A; (g) half-life against [A] for a reaction that is zero order in A;
(h) half-life against [A] for a reaction that is second order in A."

What would a graph of k vs. temperature look like?

### Re: Homework Problem 15.99

The rate constant k can be found by the Arrhenius equation k=Ae^(EA/RT). Thus, we see that it shouldn't be a linear graph but exponential.
