In a certain chemical reaction 1.00 gram of product is produced in 15 minutes when the reaction is carried out at 20oC. Assuming that there is sufficient starting material available, how much product will be produced in the same length of time if the reaction is carried out in a boiling water bath at 100oC?

The reaction rate approximately doubles for every 10 degree rise in T. (100-20)/10 = 8 and 2^8 = 256. Therefore, APPROXIMATELY 4 x 256 g should be produced in 15 minutes.
