Question:

Given that the initial rate constant is 0.0140s-1 at an initial temperature of 29 C , what would the rate constant be at a temperature of 170. C for the same reaction described in Part A?

Part A was the activation energy of a certain reaction is 46.7 kJ/mol . At 29 C , the rate constant is 0.0140s?1. At what temperature in degrees Celsius would this reaction go twice as fast? T2= 41C

Rate Constants

Rate constants have a misleading name, since they are not constant. They depend on temperature, reaction thermodynamics (like activation energy), and the molecular kinetics of the mixture. The relevant equation is the Arrhenius equation:

{eq}k = Ae^{\dfrac{-E_a}{RT}} {/eq}

The activation energy is given, and we're only missing the final rate constant. We can find it like this:

{eq}T_1 = 302K\\ T_2 =...
