Arrhenius when Temperature Changes

Postby Elizabeth Ignacio 1C » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:55 pm

Does it matter which set of numbers is used as k1 and T1, and k2 and T2?

No, it shouldn't matter which temperature/rate constant pair you use for k1/T1 and k2/T2 as long as you make sure you use the right one in the equation.

Just make sure that you are consistent with which numbers you use. Keep track of which set of numbers is k1/T1 and which is k2/T2

As long as your k1 matches up with your T1 and your k2 matches up with your T2 then you should be fine
