The decomposition of A into a product has a value of k as 4.5 \times 10 ^3 s ^{-1} at 10°C and energy of activation 60 kJ mol–1.

K1 = 4.5 \times 10 ^3 s ^{-1}
K2 = 1.5 \times 10 ^4 s ^{-1}

E_a =  60 kJ mol–1

K2 = 1.5 \times 10 ^4 s ^{-1}

log\frac{K_2}{K_1}=\frac{E_a(T_2-T_1)}{2.303RT_1T_2}

log(\frac{1.5\times 10^{4}}{4.5\times 10^{3}})=\frac{60(T_2-283)}{2.303\times R\times 283\times T_2}

log(\frac{150}{45})=\frac{60(T_2-283)}{5418.61\times T_2}

log150-log45=\frac{60T_2-16980}{5418.61\times T_2}

2.176-1.653=\frac{60T_2-16980}{5418.61\times T_2}

0.5229=\frac{60T_2-16980}{5418.61\times T_2}

T_2=\frac{16980}{2733.4}

T_2=6.1K
