Problem: Label this diagram ΔE   reactants   products   Ea   transition stateWhich curve represents the catalyzed reaction? a) Blue(top) b) green (bottom)

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that an energy diagram is usually read from left to right.


The components of a one-step energy diagram are:


• Reactants: are placed on the left/beginning of the energy diagram

• Products: are placed on the right/end of the energy diagram

• Transition state: is the state with the highest energy in the energy diagram

• Energy change (ΔE or ΔG˚): is the difference in energy between products and reactants

• Activation energy (Ea): is the difference in energy between reactants and transition state
