## Temperature Coefficient Calculator

 T1 : °C     °K T2 : °C     °K R1 : R2 : Q10 :

• Q10 is the factor by which the reaction rate increases when the temperature is raised by ten degrees. Q10 is a unitless quantity.
• R1 is the measured reaction rate at temperature T1 (where T1 < T2). Note that R1 and R2 must have the same unit.
• R2 is the measured reaction rate at temperature T2 (where T2 > T1). Note that R1 and R2 must have the same unit.
• T1 is the temperature at which the reaction rate R1 is measured (where T1 < T2). The temperature unit must be either the Celsius or the Kelvin, and may not be any other unit, such as the Fahrenheit. Note that T1 and T2 must have the same unit. T1 and T2 do not need to be exactly 10 degrees apart.
• T2 is the temperature at which the reaction rate R2 is measured (where T2 > T1). The temperature unit must be either the Celsius or the Kelvin, and may not be any other unit, such as the Fahrenheit. Note that T1 and T2 must have the same unit. T1 and T2 do not need to be exactly 10 degrees apart.

Each calculator cell shown below corresponds to a term in the formula presented above. Enter appropriate values in all cells except the one you wish to calculate. Therefore, at least four cells must have values, and no more than one cell may be blank. The value of the blank cell will be calculated based on the other values entered. After a calculation is performed, the calculated cell will be highlighted and subsequent calculations will calculate the value of the highlighted cell (with no requirement to have a blank cell). However, a blank cell has priority over a highlighted cell.

Please note that the unit of temperature used in the above equation must be in Celsius or Kelvin (not Fahrenheit). If your temperature values are in Fahrenheit, please first convert them to corresponding values in Celsius or Kelvin.
