For some reason, this isnt working out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Arhennius equation, k = A*e^(-Ea/RT)

I have tables of temperature and k. The book says just calculate it by having the x axis be 1/T and y axis be ln(k)

Ok, take Ln of both sides

ln(k) = ln(A*e^(-Ea/RT))

ln(k) = -Ea/RT + ln(A)

Oh, that looks like y = mx + b
