The activation energies of two reactions are given as Ea1= 40 J and Ea2= 80 J, then the relation between their rate constants can be written as: A.k1 > k2 B.k1 < k2 C.k1 = k2 D.k1 + k2 = 0 Please explain the answer to me

Expert Answer:

As the value of activation energy, Ea increases, the value of rate constant, k decreases.
 
So, k1 > k2 since E1 < E2
