The graph below shows the energy profile for an exothermic reaction. Write 3 - 5 sentences to describe the reaction profile and the energy terms that are necessary for a reaction to be successful. I really need help describing this exothermic graph.

    well i am not absolutely sure but the rising graph shows bond formation and the second half shows bond breaking. The energy of products being less than that of reactants shows that the net energy has decreased which proves it to be endothermic. Therefore the reaction first releases heat and then absorbs heat more than it has released.

    Also remember that Bond Formation release energy and bond breaking takes up energy
