Universal Gas constant and arrhenius equation

  1. Hello,

    I am curious as to how the Universal Gas Constant, R, is important with regards to the rates in solids? It is in the Arrhenius Equation

    The gas constant is simply ##R \equiv N_\mathrm{A} k_\mathrm{B}##, the Boltzmann constant scaled for a molar quantities.
