What will be an ideal response? Lesley May 29, 2016, 06:32:56 PM #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 Aileen May 29, 2016, 06:42:18 PM #2 You're my best friend!
