# Problem: For reactions with the following activation energies, which will have the greatest rate at 298 K? Hint: Assume that the frequency factor, A, in the Arrhenius equation is the same for each of the reactions. A. Ea = 10 kJ/mol B. Ea = 15 kJ/molC. Ea = 20 kJ/molD. Ea = 25 kJ/molE. Ea = 30 kJ/mol

###### FREE Expert Solution

Recall the two-point form of the Arrhenius Equation:

where:

k = rate constant

Ea = activation energy (in J/mol)

R = gas constant (8.314 J/mol • K)

T = temperature (in K)

A = Arrhenius constant or frequency factor
