The activation energy of a certain reaction is 35.3 kJ/mol. At 20 degrees C, the rate constant is 0.0130 s^-1. At what temperature would this reaction go twice as fast?
Answer in units of degrees Celsius.

i think the answer is around 34, but i keep in getting it screwed up.

2)
Consider the following multistep reaction:

C + D <> CD (fast)
CD + D > CD2 (slow)
CD2 + D > CD3 (fast)
C + 3D > CD3 (overall)

determine the rate law for the overall reaction

Answer should be in k[A][B]^2 format

I know the overall reaction has much to do with the slow reaction, but i don't get how to incorporate that into its proper format based on its order

The reactant concentration in a zero-order reaction was 0.100 M after 125 s and 1.50×10−2 M after 385 s. What is the rate constant for this reaction?
What was the initial reactant concentration for the reaction?

I found the rate constant to be 3.27 x 10^-4 M/s, but im having trouble finding initial reactant concentration...

an equation that mite help..
[A]= - kt + [A]0

[A]0 is the initial reactant rate i beleieve.. i thinks...

    How are you solving it? Post your work and I'll try to find the error. You should be using the Arrhenius equation.
    Also, make sure activation energy is J/mol. Also make sure you are using temperature in Kelvin.

    Can't you simply take the initial equation you had, which is,
    [A] = [A]o - kt (that's how you found k is it not?), then
    substitute A = 0.1 and substitute your value of k, and 125 for t, then solve for [A]o? You could also use 1.5 x 10^-2 for (A) and 385 for t and your value of k and get the same value although I didn't try it. Check my thinking. I found about 0.14 M or so using the first suggetion above.
