IF a reation generally takes 40 seconds to occur at 45 degrees C, how long should the reaction take a t the following temperatures?
A. 35C
B. 55C
C. 65C

• chem -

The rule of thumb, which is not exact, is that the reaction doubles for every 10 C rise in temperature. So at 35 it should be 1/2, at 55 should be double, and at 65 should be doubled again (4x)

• chem -

the lower the temperture the longer it should take correct?

• chem -

yes.

• chem -

ok so
A.20 seconds
B. 80 seconds
C. 120 seconds

• chem -

20 is ok
80 is ok
If you double again, that is 160 seconds. Or double x double = 4x and 4 x 40 = 160

Thank You
