Studying for exam, how would I show work?

A reaction has an activation energy of 70.0 kJ/mol. When the temperature is increased from 20 oC to 40 oC, the reaction goes how many times faster?

Hey there jeffreyc18! So for this one we are going to use the Two Point Form of Arrhenius Equation, because we have two different temperatures. Since we are not given rate constant k for either of the temperatures, we will find the ratio of k2/k1 which will tell us how much faster the reaction goes. Hope this makes sense! Let us know if you have any further questions. enter image description here
