We are being asked to determine which of the following reactions would be fastest in the reverse direction.
Recall the definitions
Based on their activation energies and energy changes and
assuming that all collision factors are the same, which of the
following reactions would be fastest in the reverse direction?
(a) Ea = 45 kJ/mol; ΔE = –25 kJ/mol
(b) Ea = 35 kJ/mol; ΔE = –10 kJ/mol
(c) Ea = 55 kJ/mol; ΔE = 10 kJ/mol
