    Important information about Calculate Activation Energy

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    The rate constants of some reactions double with every 10 degree rise in temperature. Assume that a reaction takes place at 291 K and 301 K. What must the activation energy be for the rate constant to double as described?
    kJ/mol

    I have no idea where to start on this problem. I can't seem to figure out how to set up the ratio for this problem.
