FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the orientation factor of a reaction given that the activation energy is 56.8 kJ/mol and the frequency factor is 1.5x1011 s-1


Acc. to the Arrhenius equation, frequency factor A represents the number of approaches to the activation barrier per unit of time

k = Ae-Ea/RT

where k = is the rate; 

A = Frequency factor

Ea = Activation energy

R = Gas constant

T = Temperature
