Rat of reaction problems i have no idea how to do

  1. Jun 30, 2009 #1
    A certin chemical reaction is carried out at 45C and the rate observed is 280M/s. What will the rate of the reaction be at 55C?

    i have no idea what equation to use for this problem could someone break it down for me step by step

    In general this type of questions is solved with Arrhenius equation. However, you are not given enough information to use it.

    My bet is that you are expected to use a rule of thumb that states that reaction gets twice faster when temperature grows by 10 deg C. Just remember that this is an approximation of approximation :wink:
