Problem

Which one of the following statements about the effect of a catalyst on a reaction is NOT TRUE?

(a) A catalyst has no effect on the equilibrium composition of the reaction.

(b) A catalyst increases the value of k for a reaction.

(c) When a reaction is catalyzed, both forward and reverse reactions are accelerated.

(d) When a catalyst speeds up a reaction, the rate law stays the same.

(e) A catalyst provides an alternate, lower energy pathway for a reaction.
