#### Explanation:

The Arrhenius equation provides a relationship between the rate constant

The Arrhenius equation is:

where,

**rate constant**,

**collision factor**,

**steric factor**,

**activation energy**,

**ideal gas constant**

and **temperature**.

The Arrhenius equation could also be written as:

where, **Arrhenius factor**.

Taking the natural logarithm of both parties, we get:
