The rate constants for a reaction are found to be

k(-35 C) = 1.0 x 10-3 s-1

k(-25 C) = 2.0 x 10-3 s-1

At what temperature (in degrees C) will the rate constant be 3.79 x 10-3 s-1?

• Chemistry -

Use the Arrhenius equation. Use k1 and k2 along with T1 and T2 and solve for Ea, the activation energy which isn't given. Then re-evaluate the same equation using Ea from the first calculation and k1 with T1 or k2 with T2 along with k3 and T3. Solve for T3.

• Chemistry -

what is A then? the pre exponential factor?

• Chemistry -

Does it matter? Whatever it is for k1 and k2 it should (must?) be the same for k3 so whatever you use for the first calculation to determine Ea you would use the same constant for the k3 calculation. I would use 1 to make it simple.

i am getting different values for both K1 and K2.
i am using ln(k) = -Ea/(R*T) + ln(A)

lnA = 0

am i correct?

Hey guys! are you from 3.091x ?
I wasn't aware that there was a exam, and now it is due in few hours. Can you help me out? Much appreciated.

1)Determine the minimum potential that must be applied to a proton so that, on interaction with a hydrogen atom, it can excite the ground state electron to a state of n=2

and

2)Electron exhibiting a particle wavelength of 3.77 x 10-9 are emitted from hydrogen atoms after interaction with high energy photons. Assuming that the electrons in the hydrogen atom were in their ground state prior to interaction, determine the wavelength of the photon which generated the free electrons

for 3rd
The higher boiling substance has hydrogen bonds and the other does not
for 2d 3 optin
please tell any other ans you got?
