Step 1

Arrhenius equation says the rate constant of a reaction is related to its activation energy at a given temperature.

Step 2

Given here,

the rate of a particular reaction quadruples when the temperature is increased from 25°C to 35°C.

rate constant of reaction 1 = k1

rate constant of reaction 2 = k2

So, (k2/k1) = 4

T = temperature

T1 = 25 + 273 = 298 K
