12+ Activation Energy Diagram. The activation energy e_a is the difference between the energy of the activated complex and that of the reactants. Learn vocabulary, terms and more with flashcards, games and other study tools.
Activation energy is defined as the minimum amount of extra energy required by a reacting activation energy is denoted by ea. In the energy diagram, if the products have energy lesser than the reactants then the reaction involved is a exothermic reaction. What is an energy profile?
In this video, i go over how to properly label and explain a reaction mechanism diagram which is also referred to as an energy diagram or energy graph.
12+ Activation Energy Diagram. The effect of a catalyst on the activation energy and enthalpy change. We can graphically determine the activation energy by manipulating the arrhenius equation to put it into the form of a straight line. It is usually measured in joules (j) and or kilojoules per mole. You probably remember from chm1045 endothermic and exothermic reactions
