Problem: Which statement most accurately describes the behavior of catalyst? (A) A catalyst increases the ΔG of a reaction and hence the forward rate. (B) A catalyst reduces ΔH of a reaction and hence the temperature needed to produce products. (C) A catalyst reduces the activation energy for a reaction and increases the rate of a reaction. (D) A catalyst increases the equilibrium constant and final product concentrations.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Nagavelli's class at HCC.
