AP Chemistry Unit 5.6 Reaction Profiles

Reaction Profiles

  • Activation energy: Activated Complex – Change in Reactants (peak – line)
  • Transition state/Activated complex: bonds are partially formed (shown on curve’s peak)
  • Activation energy of reverse reaction: Forward Activation Energy –
  • ΔH/ ΔE (total energy change/energy released by the reaction) = distance from products and reactants; H – H
