Question:
Consider the reaction, H2(g) + I2(g) → 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) k2 = 3.5 x 10 L/(mol.s) Gas constant, R = 8.314 J/(mol.K)
-3

T1 = 600 K T2 = 650 K
