Problem

The rate of a certain reaction was studied at various temperatures. The table shows temperature (T) and rate constant (k) data collected during the experiments. Plot the data, and then answer the following questions. 

What is value of the activation energy, a (kJ•mol -1), for this reaction? 






What is the value of the pre-exponential factor (sometimes frequency factor), A (s -1), for this reaction?

Solution

To plot the data we need to use the Plot-wise approach of the Arrhenius Equation. The Arrhenius equation can be written in a non-exponential form or straight-line form.
