In a temperature-jump experiment, why does a change in temperature result in a correspond-ing change in equilibrium?

What will be an ideal response?

  • #1
  • Answer
The T-jump method relies on Arrhenius behavior of the reaction rates. In Arrhenius be-havior, the rate constant is temperature dependent; therefore, when the temperature changes, the rate constant changes as well and a new equilibrium will exist. The system will relax to establish this new equilibrium
