### Arrhenius Equation and constant

could someone elaborate more on using the Arrhenius equation and its constant?

### Re: Arrhenius Equation and constant

Can someone also expand conceptually on what "Exhibiting Arrhenius behavior" entails in regards to rate constants?

The closest answer I've gotten so far is that the Arrhenius equation shows the relationship between k, temperature and activation energy. To put it simply, the higher Ea is, the smaller k will be. The higher temperature is, the higher the rate constant will be.
