What is meant by an effective rate constant here and how does it work?

The rate at which energy as heat is released by this reaction is directly proportional to the rate of decrease of the concentration of H2O2 (aq). Thus the rate of temperature increase will be directly proportional to the rate of the reaction, where C is the constant of proportionality:

This can be used to find an effective rate constant. The units will not be the same as for the true rate constant, but k’ can be used to determine the activation energy of the reaction.
