Recall that the Arrhenius equation can be written as
k = rate constant
Ea = activation energy (in J/mol)
R = gas constant (8.314 J/mol • K)
T = temperature (in K)
A = Arrhenius constant or frequency factor
The activation energy for the isomerization of methyl isonitrile is 160 kJ/mol.
Calculate the fraction of methyl isonitrile molecules that have an energy of 160.0 kJ or greater at 501 K .
