Arrhenius plot

Postby AditiSax » Sun Mar 10, 2019 10:01 pm

What is the relevance of having the axes of the arrhenius plot be lnk and 1/T?

It allows us to analyze the effect of temperature on the rates of chemical reactions

I believe it’s because it displays a straight line so it’s easier to say more things about its slope since it’s a straight line.
If it was all wiggly I imagine it might be harder to make estimates or assume what K is for example.

Reading online, I think it is just for convenience to make the plot appear to be a straight line and allow us to analyze the data with greater ease. Hope this helps.
