I'm a bit rusty on my calc, and hope someone here can help me. In reviewing a particular scientific paper, the reaction rate equation is expressed as:
Where is the reduction in property with respect to time
A is the steric constant
k is the gas constant or Bolzmann constant (depending on units)
T is absolute temperature
E is the activation energy of the reaction
The paper then says "Integration of the rate equation, followed by the taking of logarithms, results in an equation of the form"
I understand this to be true, but I am having a hard time getting from the first equation to the second equation on my own. If anyone could break it down step by step for me, I would be most appreciative.
