Q. 63

What happens to most probable kinetic energy and the energy of activation with increase in temperature?

Answer :

The most probable Kinetic energy and energy of activation are affected with increase in temperature as according to Maxwell Boltzmann energy distribution curve when temperature T becomes T+10 degree Celsius then the effective collision and energy of molecules increases resulting in the formation of product. Rate of reaction also increases with the rise in temperature because according to the Maxwell-Boltzmann Energy distribution curve as temperature increases, fraction of molecules having energy greater than activation energy also increases, which results in the increase in number of effective collisions and thus rate constant and rate of reaction increases.
