It is said that activation energy does not change with temperature.
But I am unable to figure out why. If we increase the temperature, the kinetic energy of the molecules will increase and they will need less extra energy and hence lesser activation energy to overcome the threshold energy barrier.
When I surfed the net, at most of the places it has been explained that increasing the temperature increases the no. of molecules having more energy and hence reaction rate is more but activation energy is same. This makes some sense but I still don't get why the activation energy doesn't decrease as the KE of an individual molecule should also increase on increasing the temperature.
