k and rate of reaction

Postby Angela Kim 2H » Sun Feb 21, 2016 12:37 am

The Arrhenius Equation gives us that k=A exp(-Ea/RT).
Does rate also equal A exp(-Ea/RT)?
How would we find the rate of a reaction using the Arrhenius Equation?

To find a rate, a specific reaction must be given, from which a rate law can be established. Then a k value must be found by by using the Arrhenius equation and then it can be related back into the Rate law derived from a given reaction.
