According to Arrhenius equation k = k0 exp(-E/RT). So rate constant should increase with increase in temperature.

Dipankar Kakati said:   8 years ago
The Rate constant increases.

Dehua said:   8 years ago
It will be Increases.

Dev said:   7 years ago
Yes, it should increase.

Rajiv Kumar said:   7 years ago
It should be increases.

SURESH said:   6 years ago
The Rate constant increase with temperature.

k = k0 exp(-E/RT).
ln k =ln k0 + ln (-E/RT).

From the above equation, ln k is inversely prepositional to T.

So increase in T decrease in ln k.
Removing ln will exponentiation decrease in value of k.

Answer is option A.

It is absolutely increased with temperature.

Aadhar Chauhan said:   4 years ago
Option A is the right answer because K (rate constant) is directly proportional to the temperature.
