Question

5. Draw a potential energy diagram given the following information. the reaction proceeds in three steps the activation energy of step 2 is double that of step 1. • the activation energy of step 3 is double that of step 2 the reaction is endothermic Label all axes, the rate limiting step, the location of any intermediates and transition states, the overall enthalpy of reaction, the reactants and products. Using a dotted line, show the effects of a catalyst on the reaction and provide a brief explanation. [2]
