Answer

Changing the temperature and using an appropriate catalyst will affect the value of the rate constant $k$.

Work Step by Step

Because higher temperatures will increase the reaction rate, changing the temperature will change the rate constant. Since the rate constant also depends on activation energy, using a catalyst will increase the reaction rate, changing the rate constant.
