For this problem, we have to determine which among the statement is true when the temperature is raised
Consider the Potential Energy vs. Reaction Coordinate diagram shown to the right. For each of the following questions, circle the best answer.
If the temperature is raised,
i) the rate constant for the forward reaction will increase more than the rate constant for the back reaction
ii) the rate constant for the back reaction will increase more than the rate constant for the forward reaction
iii) both rate constant will increase to the same extent
