ln k and 1/t

When is the profile lnk vs 1/t and when is the profile lnk vs t?

What profile are you talking about. Are you referring to the rate law plots?

The profile is lnk vs. 1/T when referring to the graph of the Arrhenius Equation, with slope =-Ea/R. the graph for lnk vs. T would not be linear, so we would view that as incorrect, but the graph ln[A] vs. T would be linear with slope -k.
