Extended Essay Rules - BE SURE TO READ THESE before starting a thread!

1. Just to make it clear - we will not give you a topic for your EE, but we will help you refine and expand on your original ideas for a topic. You are marked on your choice of topic so we can't help you with that.

2. Before doing anything, read the Extended Essay for Dummies thread. At the very least, we recommend you take a look at the 5 Cardinal Rules of the EE!

3. Before asking anything about format or requirements for the extended essay, we suggest you read the IB Extended Essay Guide first (which you can download from here).

4. Make your thread titles descriptive. At the minimum, mention the subject area and if you have one, the topic! For instance "History EE on Nazi Propaganda" is better than "EE help please". The people who know about history and nazi propaganda will click on the first thread and probably miss the second one. Help us to help you - give it an accurate title!

• From the Arrhenius equation, k = A exp (-Ea/(RT)), taking ln of both sides ln k = ln A - Ea/(RT) = -(Ea/R) T + ln A, which is the equation of a line with slope -Ea/R and vertical intercept of ln A. So if you know the slope you can find the activation energy k is the rate constant such that the "rate of change of [H2O2]" = Δ[H2O2]/Δt = k [H2O2] (first order rate law). By unit analysis, k has dimension of inverse time. Hope that helps. There should also be videos online of teachers walking through the data processing.
• So I had an idea for a RQ for my History EE, but I'm not sure what question i should use. I know I want to do something about the US Civil War and the role that civic rights played in it. So for now my question is : What role did civil rights play during the different stages of the American Civil War? I'm not sure if the question is too precise or too vague, so if possible I would like certain guidance concerning the RQ. And if u have any better ideas for a EE concerning the Civil War, please let me know
