Arrhenius equation and order of rxn

Postby allyz1F » Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:19 pm

Can the Arrhenius equation be used for all orders of reactions? Or is the order not even relevant to using the equation?

Order doesn't apply to the arrhenius equation since all you're doing is finding k or ea. If you were given k, you could figure out what order it is from the units alone, but that wouldn't affect how you solve using the formula.

The Arrhenius equation can essentially be used for all orders of reactions because order isn't a piece of information needed for the equation.

It technically can be used for all orders because order does not play a part in the equation.
