With ln k2/k1 =Ea/R (1/T - 1/T2) is it assumed that A is 1?

Yeah I believe for our purpose we are usually assuming A is just 1.

I think we should assume A is 1 unless otherwise stated

Yes, assume A=1 unless otherwise stated.

I thought for that equation that A ends up getting canceled out during the derivation and that's why it isn't present

Yes, we should assume A=1 unless they tell us otherwise.

Yep, usually A=1 unless it was explicitly stated otherwise

Correct, unless started otherwise A=1.

Correct, if we assume A=1, it should cancel out in the derivation for this condition.
