A chemical reaction has a ΔH of –-150 kJ mol and the activation energy for its reverse reaction is 350 kJ mol.
The activation energy, in kJ mol, of the forward reaction is
A. +500
B. +200
C. +150
D. -–200


The reaction
A + B → C; ΔH negative
involves a two-step process
A + B → X; ΔH positive
X → C; ΔH negative
Which one of the following diagrams best represents the energy changes during the course of the reaction?
