Activation energy → Highest peak - Starting Energy
For step B to C, step is at 12 kcal/mol while the peak is at 24 kcal/mol
24 - 12 = 12 kcal/mol
Use the reaction energy diagram above to answer the following questions.
Calculate the activation energy, ΔG for the step C to B _____ kcal/mol
Calculate the overall energy change, ΔG°, for the process B to A. ________kcal/mol.
Which step is faster, (a) B to A or (b) B to C?
