Question:
Consider the reaction, H2(g) + I2(g)\u2192 2HI(g). The rate constant for the formation of HI is 2.7 x
10-4 L/(mol.s) at 600 K and 3.5 x 10-3 L/(mol.s) at 650 K. Find the activation energy [Ea].
Solution:
k1 = 2.7 x 10-4 L/(mol.s)
T1 = 600 K
k2 = 3.5 x 10-3 L/(mol.s)
T2 = 650 K
Gas constant, R = 8.314 J/(mol.K)
