2. order reaction rate constant

A = cm3s-1
A = cm3mol-1s-1
EA/R = K
EA = kJ mol-1
EA = kcal mol-1
T = K
T = °C
B =
TR = K
k = cm3s-1
k = cm3mol-1s-1

The results have been rounded to significant digits.

This tool may be used to calculate the temperature dependent values of a 2. order chemical rate constant following the equation

k = A * (T/TR)B * exp(-EA/RT).

The calculations are done after the input of each value, however, perfoming effectively only those calculations that are possible with the input values present. The preexponential factor A and the temperature T must be given in any case. For a temperature dependence following (T/TR)B, the reference temperature TR and the exponent B must be given also. For a temperature dependence following exp(-EA/RT) you have to type EA/R or EA.

Usage: Type the values of the parameters from the equation for the temperature dependant rate constant into the fields, behind which you find the corresponding unit. In the case that a calculation or a conversion into another unit is possible, this will be performed after the next mouse click. Fields of parameters that are not needed should be left blank. After the complete input of all needed parameters, the temperature, and another mouseclick on any free space of the window or on the "calculate" button, you may read the result. Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation. Move the mouse over a unit or a parameter or click on it to read its full name.

Example: The Arrhenius expression of the reaction O3 + O → O2 + O2 is k = 8.0·10-12 exp(-2060 K/T) cm3s-1. What is the value of the rate constant at 25°C ? Type the value of the preexponetial factor "8e-12" into the field for A, behind which you find "cm3s-1". Type the value of the normalized activation energy "2060" into the field for EA/R. Finally, type the temperature in degrees celsius into the corresponding field. After a click with the mouse on any free space of the window or on the "calculate" button you may read the result (k25°C = 7.99·10-15 cm3s-1).

- Large and small numbers are written exponentially. As example 2.3e5 = 2.3⋅105 = 230000 or 4.5e-5 = 4.5⋅10-5 = 0.000045.
- There is no warranty for the conversion. Cactus2000 is not responsible for damage of any kind caused by wrong results.
