NEET Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Questions Solved

If for a first order reaction, rate constant varies with temperature according to the graph given below. At 27°C1.5×10-4 percent of the reactant molecules are able to cross-over the potential barrier. At 52°C, the slope of this graph is equal to 0.2k-1 sec-1, calculate the value of rate constant at 52°C, assuming that activation energy does not change in this temperature range.


(A) 3.14 × 10-2 min-1                                       

(B) 1.35 × 10-2min-1

(C) 0.75 × 10-2min-1                                        

(D) 8.75 × 10-2 min-1
