Chemistry Graphs: Potential Energy Diagrams
Use the given graphs to answer the following questions.
that must be gained by the
molecules in order to initiate a reaction. Compare the
A to the
B. Which reaction is more favorable?
Which reaction is endothermic?
represents the activated complex. If the complex loses energy, what will it transform into?
Some reactions are reversible. In order to decide which direction is favored, a comparison of the
in each direction must be made. For
A, which direction is favored, forward or reverse?
is stored within the bonds of molecules. For an exothermic reaction, such as that plotted on
b, do the
molecules possess a greater amount of stored energy?
