The rate of a reaction becomes four times when the temperature changes from 293 K to 313 K. Calculate the energy of activation (Ea) of the reaction assuming that it does not change with temperature. [R=8.314 J K-1 mol -1, log =0.6021]
We know, log
Given : T1 = 293 K, T2 = 313 K,
Let = K(consider) = 4K,
R = 8.314, Ea = ?
= 52854.43 = 52.8 K J mol-1
