The rate constant of the fi rst-order reaction 2 N2O(g) S
2 N2(g)  O2(g) is 0.76 s1 at 1000. K and 0.87 s1 at 1030. K.
Calculate the activation energy of the reaction.

the solutions manual uses the gas constant in terms of kJ. is this necessary? or can we use the gas constant in terms of J?

I'm sure either is fine, as long as you are consistent throughout the problem.
