Problems with kinetic rate equation

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a problem with the custom equation for a kinetic reactant. I can not use a rate and the activation energy at the same time. When I klick on the box for the activatrion energy the rate constant disappers? Can you help me with this problem?

Thanks a lot,

Christoph

Dear Christoph:

The reason for this is that the temperature dependence of the rate constant is defined as a function of the activation energy (Ea) and pre-exponential factor (A) as follows:

If you have a kinetic rate law that includes both a rate constant and activation energy, you might consider using the Custom Rate Law features in GWB.

Hope that helps,
