Step 1

According to Arrhenius Equation:

The rate of a chemical reaction is a function of the absolute temperature T of the system.

Step 2

According to Arrhenius equation taking the ratio of the two rate constants we have

The rate constant

Given,

K1=2.7 * 109

K2=27.3 * 109

T1= 311+273=584K

T2= 444 +273=717K
