I need to compare the chemical and physical properties of the two reactions for a school project. However, I can't find a source that explicitly states their activation energies! We haven't learned yet how to calculate activation energies yet, so I'm in a little trouble.

  • $\begingroup$ AFAIK, there is no simple way how to compute activation energy, but from the experimental data of the reaction kinetic. But in these cases it can be difficult, as the reactions are of runaway kind. $\endgroup$ – Poutnik Apr 3 '19 at 1:21
