A particular reaction has an activation energy of 51.6kJ/mol-rxn. How much faster is the reaction at 50 degrees C versus 25degrees C?

I do not know how to start this!

    I think we've gone over this before. You start by substituting into the Arrhenius equation. Ea goes in in J/mol (not kJ/mol) and you change T to kelvin.

    So the equation I use is ln k = a + (-ea/rt) correct?

  • Chemistry -

    I would use ln(k2/k1) = (Ea/R)(1/T1 - 1/T2)
