Two-point form of the Arrhenius Equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{ln}}\frac{{\mathbf{k}}_{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{k}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{a}}}{\mathbf{R}}\mathbf{\left[}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{2}}}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{1}}}\mathbf{\right]}}$

T1 = 25 ˚C + 273.15 = 298.15 K

T2 = 42.4 ˚C + 273.15 = 315.55 K
