The rate constant for the reaction 2 C (g) -> D (g) is #0.231 s^-1# at 2°C and #11.6 s^-1# at 77°C. What is the the value of A in the Arrhenius equation?
Recall the Arrhenius equation,
If we make two equations with each set of parameters and subtract them, we arrive at,
Let's derive the activation energy of the reaction from your data,
With all of this data, we can calculate the frequency factor using
