# Using the Arrhenius Equation

The rearrangement of cyclopropane to propene has been studied at various temperatures with the following results.

Rate constant, k (s-1) Temperature (K)

3.30 x 10-9 600

2.19 x 10-7 650

7.96 x 10-6 700

1.80 x 10-4 750

2.74 x 10-3 800

3.04 x 10-2 850

2.58 x 10-1 900

(a) From the appropriate plot of these data, determine the value of the activation energy for this reaction.

(b) Use the graph to estimate the value of k at 500 K.

(c) Estimate the temperature at which the value of k would be equal to

5.00 x 10-5 s-1.
