I need to fid the activation energy but i forgot how to solve for Ea


can you show the work thank you

  • chem/math -

    take the ln of both sides:
    ln [4.58*10^-15] = ln [e^(Ea/2537.02)]
    *since ln has a base of e, the term at the right side becomes:
    ln [4.58*10^-15] = (Ea/2537.02)

    now you solve for Ea. :)
