Chemistry

The main reason for the increase in reaction rate with temperature is that:

The activation energy increases rapidly with temp (I think it is this one)

A 10 C temp rise results in the rate doubling

heats acts as a catalyst

or

The fraction of high-energy molecules increases experimentally with temp

  2. On a 10.5 ounce bag of potato chips, the manufacturer states that the single serving is one ounce, which is equivalent to 150 calories. How many kilojoules are in this bag of potato chips?
    Is it 6.898 kJ?
