i seriously do not understand the formula for this problem :(
The reaction for the decomposition of dinitrogen monoxide gas to form an oxygen radical is: N2O(g)==>N2(g)+O(g) . If the activation energy is 250 kJ/mol and the frequency factor is 8.0 x 1011 s1, what is the rate constant for the firstorder reaction at 1000 K?

ln k = ln A  Ea/RT
Plug in the number and calculate k. I believe Ea must be in joules/mole and A is the frequency factor.
Here is some reading material.
