Problem

The first-order rate constant for reaction of a particular organic compound with water varies with temperature as follows:

Temperature (K)Rate Constant (s-1)
3003.2 x 10 - 11
3201.0 x 10 - 9
3403.0 x 10 - 8
3552.4 x 10 - 7


From these data, calculate the activation energy in units of kJ/mol.
