- 1. 2 (12) The following data was obtained for a decomposition of a drug D a.)Find the activation energy and A b )If the decomposition follows first order kinetics (In [D]-+In [Do]), how long will it take to decompose by 5% at 5Â°C? T(in Â°C) 25 35 45 /T k in days 0025 013 063 244 Ink Solution Arrhenius equation-Â Â Â Â Â k = A.e -E/RT K = rate constant A = pre-exponential factor E = activation energy T = temperature SoÂ Â lnk = lnA â€“(E/R).(1/T) Hence a linear fitted plot between lnk vs 1/T will give a straight line with a slope of â€“E/R and intercept lnA.

So k at 278 K is 7.34Ã—10 -5 days -1 . According to question [D]/[D 0 ] = 0.05 So t = 40814 days.
