**Chemistry- two point Arrhenius Equation (miscalculation??)**

## Homework Statement

At 25 degrees celsius, the first-order rate constant for a reaction is 2.0 x 10^3 s^-1. The activation energy is 15.0 kJ/mol. what is the value of the rate constant at 75 degrees celsius.

T1= 298.15 K

T2= 348.15 K

K1= 2.0 x 10^3 s^-1

Ea= 15.0 kJ/mol

K2= ??

## Homework Equations

K2=K1(e^[(Ea/R)(1/T1-1/T2)])

## The Attempt at a Solution

K2= 2.0 x 10^3 s^-1(e^[(15.0 kJ/mol / 8.3145 J/molK)(10^3 J / 1 kJ)(0.0036 K - 0.0029 K)])

I can't remember if the solution is supposed to be 4.8 x 10^3 s^-1. This is taken from my notes that I have on my course guide. I am basically trying to replicate the entire process, but I keep coming up with over sized answers that are to the 9th power or something... -.-
