    When calculating activation energy am i right in thinking that it is calculated by multiplying the gradient of the straight line on the graph (when plotting lnk against 1/T) by the gas constant (8.31 JK-1)? and if so what are the units of the activation energy? thanku xxx

    Activation energy = gradient x -8.31

    units = J mol^-1 K^-1
