Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius gave the Arrhenius equation. Until 1899, it was not clear why the rate of reaction doubled for a 10-degree rise in most of the chemical reactions. After the Arrhenius equation is discovered, the problem is solved as it explains the relation between the temperature and rate of reaction.
where k represents the kinetic reaction rate
Ea is the activation energy
R represents the universal gas constant and
T is the absolute temperature.
After solving the above equation, it gives another useful equation, which is:
