Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jim on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 9:00pm.

the activation energy for the decomposition of HI(g) to H2(g) and I2(g) is 186kj/mol. the rate constant at 555k is 3.42 x 10^-7 L/mol*s. What is the rate constant at 645K?

Please show all steps USING THE ARRHENIUS EQUATION.

Here is my work so far:

K = A e^(-Ea/RT)

3.52 x 10^-7 = A e^(-186000 J/mol / 8.314 J/mol*K x 555k)

A = 1.13 x 10^11

1.13 x 10^11 e^(-186000 J/mol /8.314 J/mol*K x 645) = 9.76 x 10^-5

However, according to the book, the answer should be 9.5 x 10^-5
