Homework 4.30

Postby ntruong2H » Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:52 pm

This is problem 4.30 from the green book: "The activation energy in organic reaction is known to be 125 kJ/mol. Will this reaction occur at room temperature?" The answer is no. However, can someone please explain why this is the answer or how we were supposed to know this? Thanks.

On the bottom of page 154 in the organic chemistry textbook, it says "reactions with activation energies below 80kj/mol can occur at room temperature." 125 > 80, therefore the reaction does not occur.
