Day 31 Podia Question

Day 31 Pre-class Podia Problem

The rate constant (k) for the rate of decomposition of N2O5 to NO and O2 in the gas phase:

2 N2O5(g) → 4 NO(g) + 3 O2(g)

is 1.66 M-1s-1 at 650. K and 7.39 M-1s-1 at 700. K. Assuming this reaction obeys the Arrhenius equation, calculate the activation energy.

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
