How do we solve for E_{a} in the Arrhenius equation or is it always given?

You would have to be given the constant A, the rate constant, and the temperature to solve for activation energy.

The value of Ea will either be given or you will be able to find it by plugging in the values of the rest of the variables in the arrhenius equation.
