Question

Which of the following statements are in accordance with the Arrhenius equation?
(a) Rate of a reaction increases with increase in temperature
(b) Rate of a reaction increases with a decrease in activation energy
(c) Rate constant decreases exponentially with an increase in temperature
(d) Rate of reaction decreases with a decrease in activation energy


Solution

Answers: (a) and (b).

Arrhenius equation can be written as k=A.eEaRT 
keEa i.e., rate of reaction increases with decrease in activation energy. 
ke1T
keT i.e., rate of reaction increases with increase in temperature. 

The rate of reaction increases with temperature. It becomes double with every 10° change. It increases with a decrease in activation energy.
