You can determine the activation energy given the rate constant, temperature, and A with the Arrhenius equation

With factors like temperature, frequency of collisions, catalyst presence, and activation energy, you can determine the rate of reaction.

It relates the equilibrium constant, k, to temperature, activation energy, and A. Given any 3 of these, you could find the other variable.

Through graphing the Arrhenius equation, we can see that the slope of the Arrhenius plot is proportional to the activation energy. A higher activation energy indicates a stronger temperature dependence of the rate constant.
