Why does the rate of a reaction increase with rise in temperature?
Rate of reaction 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.
