arrhenius eqn.

Postby Mallika Singh 1G » Sat Mar 14, 2020 1:14 pm

for t1 and t2, should t1 always be the bigger temperature?

Do you mean the van't Hoff equation?

In either case though, you should be able to take the temperature difference either way you wanted.

I assume you are referring to the derivation of the Arrhenius equation in which . It doesn't matter what T1 or T2 are as long as they correspond to the correct k1 and k2. So if you want to find what the rate constant is at a higher temperature, then you would be finding k2 and T2 which is the higher temperature. It doesn't matter since the signs will cancel out anyways.
