Temperature and Reaction Rate

Postby Drew Myers 4G » Wed Mar 11, 2020 5:11 pm

What is the relationship between temperature and the reaction rate?

As you increase the temperature the rate of reaction increases. As a rough approximation, for many reactions happening at around room temperature, the rate of reaction doubles for every 10°C rise in temperature.

reaction rate increases as temperature increases, while reaction rate decreases as temperature decreases

they are proportional in that if you increase temperature, k will increase as well and also vice versa if you decrease temperature

according to k = A e^( -EA/RT ), if T increases, k increases and if T decreases, k decreases

An increase in temperature leads to an increase in reaction rate. A decrease in temperature results in a slower reaction rate

K and temperature are proportional, so increasing temperature also increases k (increasing your rxn rate)
