Homework Help: Some Q's

  1. May 31, 2005 #1
    What would be the effect of an increase in temp on the rate constant of
    a) the forward reaction
    b) reverse reaction


    and my second Q is..why is it important to specify the temp when giving a value for Ke?

    Thanks

    You may want to elaborate on your questions. Example, are you referring to chemical reactions? Just to give you a hint, it is a good idea to describe how you would answer the questions or what you don't understand about them. Then we can help steer you in the right direction. :wink:

    Going further upon what Ouabache has said, the answer to the first question depends on what the [itex]\Delta H[/itex] of the system is. It is not possible to say that this will happen to the forward reaction because you do not know if it is exothermic or endothermic.

    Am I to assume that this is a question related to dynamic equilibrium???
