Expert Answer:

Ea is activation energy the threshold required for reaction to occur. With increase in energy the kinetic energy increases the rate constant increses exponentialyas per arrhenius equation. rate constant k  e-Ea/RTso Ea doenot change with temperature. It is equal to kinetic energy possesed by avagadro number of molecules.
