What plot of experimental data can be used to evaluate the activation
energy, Ea, of a reaction? How is Ea related to this
The experimental data required to evaluate the activation energy are rate constants as a function of absolute temperature. If ln k is plotted against 1/T, a straight line should result and the slope of the line is equal to Ea/R, where R is the ideal gas constant in energy units.
