Homework Statement
Draw a probable graph of ln (A/R) vs 1/T.
Homework Equations
Arrhenius equation: k= Ae^{E/RT}
The Attempt at a Solution
Taking natural log on both sides of arrhenius equation :
ln k = ln A  E/RT
ln k  ln R = ln A  E/RT  ln R (subtracting ln R from both sides)
ln (k/R) = ln (A/R)  E/RT
rearranging terms and comparing it with y=mx + c,
c= ln (k/R) and m = E/R
According to me the graph should be like this. In the answers, the graph is a similar one, except that there is no intercept given. I am confused. Any help is appreciated.
