Answer and Explanation:

The rate constant (K) is related to activation energy (Ea), frequency factor (A) and temperature (T) in Kelvin by the equation

R = molar gas constant

K = A(e^(-Ea/RT))

Taking natural log of both sides

In K = In A - (Ea/RT)

In K = (-Ea/R)(1/T) + In A

Comparing this to the equation of a straight line; y = mx + c

y = In K, slope, m = (-Ea/R), x = (1/T) and intercept, c = In A

a) From the question, m = (-Ea/R) = -1.10 × (10^4) K

(-Ea/R) = -1.10 × (10^4) = -11000

R = 8.314 J/K.mol

Ea = -11000 × 8.314 = 91454 J/mol = 91.454 KJ/mol

b) c = In A = 33.5

A = e^33.5 = (3.54 × (10^14))/s

c) K = A(e^(-Ea/RT))

A = (3.54 × (10^14))/s, Ea = 91454 J/mol, T = 25°C = 298.15 K, R = 8.314 J/K.mol

K = (3.54 × (10^14))(e^(-91454/(8.314×298.15))) = 0.0336/s

QED!
