Given that the rate constant is 4.0×10^−4 at 25.0 degrees C and that the rate constant is 2.6×10^−3 at 42.4 degrees C, what is the activation energy in kilojoules per mole?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 9:20 pm ad1c9bdddf
Determining the Activation Energy of a Reaction
The rate of a reaction depends on the temperature at which it is run. As the temperature increases, the molecules move faster and therefore collide more frequently. The molecules also carry more kinetic energy. Thus, the proportion of collisions that can overcome ...
The solution provides step-by-step instructions for the rate constant problem.
