**Wed Mar 14, 2018 3:26 pm**The rate constant of the reaction between CO2 and OH- in aqueous solution to give the HCO3- ion is 1.5 x 10^10 L*mol-1*s-1 at 25 C. Determine the rate constant at blood temperature (37 C), given that the activation energy for the reaction is 38 kJ*mol-1.

I looked at the solution manual for help with this problem, but when I plug their numbers into my calculator, I keep getting 0.059 instead of 0.59 for ln(k1/k). Could someone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
