Consider the Potential Energy vs. Reaction Coordinate diagram shown to the right. For each of the following questions, circle the best answer.
If a catalyst is added,
i) Ea will decrease for the forward reaction but increase for the back reaction
ii) Ea will increase for both the forward and back reactions
iii) Ea will decrease for both the forward and back reactions
iv) there is no change in Ea
