Problem: Draw a rough sketch of the energy profile for each of the following cases:b. ΔE = -10 kJ/mol, Ea = 50 kJ/mol

FREE Expert Solution

b. ΔE = -10 kJ/mol  → negative value suggests that energy of reactant is higher than the product

 Ea = 50 kJ/mol → gap between product and energy must be smaller than the EA
