# Rate constants? Watch

1. For my investigation, I am doing the hydrolysis of esters. I managed to establish a rate equation by changing the concentration of HCl and calculate the rate constant k:

Rate = 0.00270[Ester]^1 [H+]^1

This rate equation was created when the temperature was 50 Celsius.

How do i calculate the rate constant at other temperatures

Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses.

You can't really. What you know is that there is a direct proportionality to the amount of reactant to the rate. The k value would change as temp changes
