### Lyndon #16

Can someone explain #16 from Lyndon's worksheet? How did he get that graph?

The Arrhenius equation is usually k=Ae^(-Ea/RT). If you ln both sides you would get lnk=lnA- Ea/RT. This allows you to figure out the graph since it is in y=mx+b form. 1/T would be the x axis, lnk would be the y axis, and m would be -Ea/R. Therefore, it would be a straight line with a negative slope.
