A key reaction in the upper atmosphere is
O31g2 + O1g2 ¡ 2 O21g2
For this process, the energy of activation for the forward
reaction, Ea1fwd2, is 19 kJ/mol, and the enthalpy change for
the reaction, ΔHrxn, is -392 kJ>mol. What is the energy of
activation for the reverse reaction, Ea1reverse2? (LO 14.10)
(a) 411 kJ/mol (b) 392 kJ/mol
(c) 373 kJ/mol (d) 196 kJ/mol
