Question

The reaction

CO2(g) + H2(g) → CO(g) + H2O(g)

has an activation energy of 62 kJ/mol. If a catalyst is used the activation energy is lowered to 29 kJ/mol. By how much does the reaction rate at 600°C increase in the presence of the catalyst? (Assume the frequency factors for the catalyzed and uncatalyzed reaction are the same.)

a) By a factor of 9.23x104

b) By a factor of 94.3

c) By a factor of 1.28x106

d) By a factor of 746

e) By a factor of 1.005
