Problem: The graph below shows energy changes in a specific chemical reaction. Which terms best describe the reaction?A. Endergonic and nonspontaneousB. Endergonic and spontaneousC. Exergonic and spontaneousD. Exergonic and nonspontaneous

FREE Expert Solution

in energy diagrams, such as the one shown above, it shows the energy levels of both reactants and products, as well as the energy barrier needed to be overcome. This energy barrier is known as the activation energy. The difference of the energy levels of the reactants and products determine the spontaneity of the reaction.
