Solution: A certain reaction is studied at room temperature, and gives a straight line plot for 1/[reactant] versus time. Which one of the following statements is true?   a) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a similar plot parallel to the original graph, with a smaller value for the y-intercept. b) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a plot with a smaller slope than the original graph, but with the same y-intercept. c) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a plot with a larger slope than the original graph, but with the same y-intercept. d) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a similar plot parallel to the original graph, with a larger value for the y-intercept. e) None of the above.

Problem

A certain reaction is studied at room temperature, and gives a straight line plot for 1/[reactant] versus time. Which one of the following statements is true?

 

a) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a similar plot parallel to the original graph, with a smaller value for the y-intercept.

b) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a plot with a smaller slope than the original graph, but with the same y-intercept.

c) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a plot with a larger slope than the original graph, but with the same y-intercept.

d) The same reaction at a higher temperature would yield a similar plot parallel to the original graph, with a larger value for the y-intercept.

e) None of the above.
