### Rate constant versus Equilibrium Constant

What are the differences between rate constant and equilibrium constant when temperature is increased or decreased? How do either of these functions affect activation energy?

### Re: Rate constant versus Equilibrium Constant

The rate constant increases with temperature, and the equilibrium constant for an endothermic reaction will increase with increasing temperature and for an exothermic reaction it will decrease with increasing temperature.
