Hi,all, I have a question about the formula in ArrheniusReactionRateI.H,
the k basically calculated by the operator(),which returns:
if (mag(beta_) > VSMALL)
{
ak *= pow(T, beta_);
}

if (mag(Ta_) > VSMALL)
{
ak *= exp(-Ta_/T);
}
But I feel it's not like the total formula k = A * T^beta * exp(-Ta/T) , such as when beta < 0 , this happens in my kinetics file..
any explanation?
Thanks

right, as the mag() means the absolute value
