In this study, we considered a steady state, exothermic chemical reaction, taking the diffusion of the reactant into account and assuming an Arrhenius temperature dependence with variable pre-exponent factor. Numerical solution is constructed for the governing nonlinear boundary value problem using finite difference scheme .The effect of Frank-Kamenetskii, activation energy parameter and pre-exponent factor on the temperature were also examined, result were displayed in graphs.
