Rearrangement of methyl isonitrile to acetonitrile has activation energy of 25.0 kJ/mol and a rate constant of 8.1*10^-4s-1 @ 80 Celsius. what is the value of the rate constant @ 255.0 celsius?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com August 14, 2018, 9:19 am ad1c9bdddf
The Arrhenius Equation
ln(k1/k2) = (E/R)[(1/T2) - (1/T1)]
T1 = 80 oC = 80+273 = ...
Calculation and answer are based on the Arrhenius Equation.
