Referring to homework 7D.1 as an example, the problem gives you 2 rate constants at 2 different temperatures and asks you to find the activation energy. In this case, you would rearrange the Arrhenius equation as a difference of T1 and T2 to get . Then once you plug the values in, you could get the value for Ea. In the constants and equations sheet, exp stands for e^.

Yes, if given all other information, the Arrhenius equation can be used to find the activation energy, Ea. I think exponential could be referring to when both sides are raised to the power of e which cancels the ln on the left and then raises the right side to the power of e.
