Kinetics : ArrheniusTemp (3 Variations)

The activation energy for the isomerization of cyclopropane to propene is 274 kJ/mol. By what factor does the rate of reaction increase as the temperature rises from 500 o C to 550 o C assuming all else remains constant? (R = 8.314 J/mol k) Hint: This is asking for the ratio of rates which is proportional to the ratio of the rate constants, all else being equal....
