This involves the **Arrhenius Equation** shown below:

$\overline{){\mathbf{k}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{A}}{\mathbf{\xb7}}{{\mathbf{e}}}^{\frac{\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{a}}}{\mathbf{RT}}}}$

A = Frequency Factor

Ea = Energy of Activation

R = Gas Constant = 8.314 J/(mol∙K)

T = Temperature

Given the following plot for the decomposition of N_{2}O_{5}, calculate the frequency factor (A):

Y-axis: ln k

X-axis: 1/t (K)

The graph is a linear line.

y= -12232x+30.863

R^{2}=1.000
