Homework question 4.30

Postby Grace_Stevenson_1A » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:08 pm

The activation energy in an organic reaction is known to be 125kj/mil. Wil this reaction occur at room temperature?

The answer is no but I'm not sure how to figure this out. Thank you in advance!

I was told that the answer is no because most organic reactions that have an activation energy under 80 kJ/mol will occur at room temperature, but I don't know if we are just supposed to know that or if there is a way to solve this problem.

I think it's just a fact/concept that we need to know. In a different post Dr.Lavelle said that it's written on page 154 of the organic chemistry textbook (3rd paragraph from the bottom). Hopefully that page can help a bit!
