    Hi all,

    So I'm really quite confused about a lab that we did a week ago at my school. It involved finding the activation energy of a compound in a given reaction by performing said reaction at different temperatures.

    Our teacher told us to calculate the Activation energy using the Arrhenius equation, but when I asked her about what method we should use to find K (the rate constant), she said we didn't need it :confused: .

    We've done virtually nothing on the equation and I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction, any help would be greatly appreciated .

    Just for anyone who doesn't know, the Arrhenius equation is K = Ae^(-activation energy/ RT), where K = rate constant, A = frequency factor, R = gas constant, and T = temperature.
