### temp vs k

how does changing temperature affect the reaction constant?

### Re: temp vs k

As temperature increases the rate constant should increase

### Re: temp vs k

there's a direct relationship so increasing temp should also increase K

### Re: temp vs k

Relationship between temperature of the reaction and its rate constant k is described in Arrhenius equation. k = Ae^(-Ea/R*T). Ea, R, and A are all constants for a specific reaction. We can see when T increases, e^(-Ea/R*T) increases, k increases as well.
