FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the rate constant for the reaction if the reaction occurs at room temperature (T = 25°C).

N2O → N2 + O

To calculate the rate constant, we will use the Arrhenius Equation:

k=Ae-EaRT

where k = rate constant
A = pre-exponential factor
Ea = activation energy (in J/mol)
R = gas constant (8.314 J/mol•K)
= temperature (in K)
