Arrhenius Equation

So I was watching an example using the Arrhenius Equation and in their equation, it is 1/T2-(1/T1) but in the textbook, it is the reverse. The answer is going to be different depending on which order you place them in so which one should I use?

Re: Arrhenius Equation

Are the k reaction rates swithced too? Because if k is switched too then it is fine

Re: Arrhenius Equation

Yes, adding to the response above, as long as the k value corresponds to the correct temperature value (k1 with T1, and so on), it should be fine.
