New formulae for calculating the activation energy of elementary acts (reactions) are suggested. The fractional activation energy of an elementary act is expressed as the sum of changes of fractions of bond orders (BOF). The application of these formulae gives values of the activation energy corresponding to the energy characteristics of chemical reactions.

Keywords: activation energy, change of fractional bond order, esterification reaction, propene hydrofluoridation, proton transfer in DNA
