Presently, it is an empirical relationship that can be used to model the temperature variation of diffusion coefficients, the population of crystal vacancies, creep rates, and many other thermally-induced processes and reactions.

### What is the formula for Arrhenius equation?

• A.

K=A*exp (-E a*R*T)

• B.

K=A*exp (-E a/T*R)

• C.

K=A*exp (-E a/R*T)

• D.

K=A*exp (E a/R*T)

C. K=A*exp (-E a/R*T)
Explanation
The Arrhenius equation is used to describe the temperature dependence of reaction rates. It states that the rate constant (k) of a reaction is equal to the pre-exponential factor (A) multiplied by the exponential term, which is given by exp (-Ea/RT), where Ea is the activation energy, R is the gas constant, and T is the temperature in Kelvin. Therefore, the correct formula for the Arrhenius equation is k = A*exp (-Ea/RT).

### What does k represent?

• A.

Rate coefficient

• B.

Kepler rate

• C.

Rate of the equation

• D.

Kelvin value

A. Rate coefficient
Explanation
The correct answer is "Rate coefficient". In chemical kinetics, the rate coefficient (k) represents the proportionality constant between the rate of a reaction and the concentrations of the reactants. It determines the speed at which a reaction takes place and is specific to each reaction. The rate coefficient is determined experimentally and is influenced by factors such as temperature, pressure, and catalysts.

### What does A represent?

• A.

Arrhenius value

• B.

Archimedes principle

• C.

Constant

• D.

Area

C. Constant
Explanation
The correct answer is "Constant." A represents a constant value, which means it does not change. It is not related to Arrhenius value, Archimedes principle, or area. A constant can be used in various mathematical equations and formulas to represent a fixed value that remains unchanged throughout the calculation.

### What does Ea represent?

• A.

Activation energy

• B.

Constant

• C.

Arrhenius value

• D.

Energy

A. Activation energy
Explanation
Ea represents activation energy, which is the minimum amount of energy required for a chemical reaction to occur. It is the energy barrier that must be overcome for reactant molecules to transform into products. Activation energy determines the rate at which a reaction proceeds, with higher activation energy leading to slower reactions. This term is commonly used in the context of the Arrhenius equation, which relates the rate constant of a reaction to the activation energy and temperature.

### What does R represent?

• A.

Robert value

• B.

Pressure

• C.

Universal gas constant

• D.

Area

C. Universal gas constant
Explanation
R represents the Universal gas constant. This constant is used in the ideal gas law equation to relate the pressure, volume, and temperature of a gas. It is denoted by the symbol R and has a value of 8.314 J/(mol·K). The Universal gas constant is an important constant in thermodynamics and is used in various calculations involving gases.

### In logarithmic form, how is the equation written?

• A.

Ln k = ln A - Ea/RT

• B.

Ln k = ln A - Ea*RT

• C.

Ln A = ln k - Ea/RT

• D.

Ln A = ln k - Ea*RT

A. Ln k = ln A - Ea/RT
Explanation
The equation is written in logarithmic form as ln k = ln A - Ea/RT. This form represents the natural logarithm of the rate constant (ln k) being equal to the natural logarithm of the pre-exponential factor (ln A) minus the activation energy (Ea) divided by the gas constant (R) multiplied by the temperature (T).
