# Answer the following in brief. Explain with the help of the Arrhenius equation, how do the rate of reaction changes with activation energy. - Chemistry

Explain with the help of the Arrhenius equation, how do the rate of reaction changes with activation energy.

#### Solution

The decrease in energy of activation (Ea) decreases "E"_"a"/"RT", hence, increases -"E"_"a"/"RT" and the rate of reaction.

Concept: Temperature Dependence of Reaction Rates
