  • Boltzmann factor
    • =e^-activation energy/kT
    • processes happen quickly when this factor is between 15 and 30
    • the values of activation energy and kT is fixed, so the only thing that can change this factor is temperature
      • When the activation energy is equal to kT, the factor is 0.37 (e^-1)
    • rate of reaction is proportional to Boltzmann factor
