Question about activation energy

  1. Dec 6, 2005 #1
    I know that when you increase a reaction at room temperature (25 degrees) by 10 degrees it doubles the reaction rate, but what activation energy is implied by this? :confused:

    I would really appreciate it if someone could let me know as i have no idea.

    theres a specific equation relating reaction rate, temperature, and activation energy...you simply need to find it in your text.
