Solution: The following data show the rate constant of a reaction measured at several different temperatures.                    Temperature(K)                              Rate Constant (1/s)                  

Problem

The following data show the rate constant of a reaction measured at several different temperatures.
                   Temperature(K)                              Rate Constant (1/s)
                           300                                                 3.37×10-3
                           310                                                 1.08×10-2
                           320                                                 3.21×10-2
                           330                                                 8.96×10-2
                           340                                                 0.235

a. Use an Arrhenius plot to determine the activation barrier for the reaction.

b. Use an Arrhenius plot to determine frequency factor for the reaction.
