Homework Help: Arhenius equation solving for K1/T2

  1. Feb 5, 2012 #1
    Hey guys its my first time in this forum and I need help with my chemistry. I guess its kind if basic chem. Basically its a question to solve for K2 or T2. Like I'm not sure how to isolate the k or T.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I keep getting a different answer than the real one . My professor said it is 6.07. Please help I'm not sure how to isolate the K2. And what happens if I need to find T2. Thanks

    Use simple Algebra to solve this. Show some work on how you tried to isolate it, and I will then guide you on how to figure it out.

    The equation is: ln(K1/K2)=Ea/R[(1/T1)-(1/T2)]
