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
where k = is the rate;
A = Frequency factor
Ea = Activation energy
R = Gas constant
T = Temperature
The activation energy of a reaction is 56.8 kJ/mol and the frequency factor is 1.5 x1011/s. Calculate the orientation factor of the reaction at 25°C.
A. 17 s-1
B. 34 s-1
C. 2.1 x 10-9s-1
D. 6.3 x 103s-1
E. none of these
