Calculating A

Postby TiffanyL1G » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:39 pm

How does one solve for A, the frequency factor, in the Arrhenius Equation? I think Dr. Lavelle said we wouldn't have to solve for A and we just have to assume it is 1 for this class. Is that true? If not how does one solve for A?

Yes, Dr. Lavelle said we are supposed to assume A is 1 unless another value of A is given. We did not cover how to calculate A in lecture so I don't think we have to worry about any questions that would ask us to do so.
