Answer: E represents energy of activation.
Arrhenius' equation gives the dependence of the rate constant k of a chemical reaction on the absolute temperature T (in kelvin), where A is the pre-exponential factor (or simply the prefactor), E_a is the activation energy, and R is the Universal gas constant:
$\quad$ By Arrhenius equation, $k=Ae^{\large\frac{-E_a}{RT}}$
