In general, reaction rates double when the temperature is increased by 10ºC. The temperature of a reaction is increased by 40ºC. The rate of the reaction will increase by a factor of ____?
is it 16?

• chemistry -

Wouldn't that be 23 = 8x
10 to 20 = 2x.
20 to 30 = 2*2x = 4x
30 to 40 = 2*4x = 8x

16
