Decomposition of a Compound via two Parallel Processes


A compound can decompose via two parallel processes with rate constants k1  and k2 . What is the difference in activation energies for these two reactions if at T=283K, k1 /k2 = 10 and at T=313K, k1 /k2 = 0.1? Express your answer in kJ/mole.

We can use Arrhenius equation for rate constant, i.e.,
