The Arrhenius equation relates reaction rates to temperature via the activation energy. Calculate the ratio of the rates at -30 degrees C (a typical stratospheric temperature) for two biomolecular reactions having the same Arrhenius A factor and initial concentrations , one of which is endothermic and has an activation energy of 54000 J /(mol) and the other of which is exothermic and has an activation energy of 7000 J /(mol).
