The Arrhenius equation can be used to calculate k as it is characterized by k = Ae^ (-Ea/RT). When manipulated, it can be also used to compare k1 and k2 at two different temperatures.

The arrhenius equation relates the temperature to the rate of reaction. It can be written as k = Ae^(-E_a/RT)

The Arrhenius equation also takes into account the presence of a catalyst when determining the reaction rate. A catalyst will lower the activation energy (Ea), therefore affecting the rxn rate.
