The activation energy of a reaction is typically determined by calculating the rate constant for the reaction at two temperatures and then manipulating the Arrhenius equation. If you determine the reaction rate constants for a particular reaction to be 0.0650 /s at 25.0 C and 0.150 /s at 35.0 C, then what is the activation energy for the reaction? Give the answer in kJ/mol.

So use the Arrhenius equation and calculate it.
