HW 15.63

Why is there '-0.59' at the end? is this the ln A value? If so, where in the question is the A value given?

Re: HW 15.63

This is a typo in the solutions manual. It should say =0.59

Re: HW 15.63

I'm not entirely sure what part of the problem this is in reference to, but -0.59 is the value you can get from
(38 kJ/mol / 8.314 x 10-3kJ/mol K)(1/310 K - 1/298 K)
You don't need ln(A) values at all to solve this problem
