Graphs of two different reactions are shown.
’both graphs show the reaction pathway on the xaxis and potential energy on the yaxis. Graph A shows reactants at a low potential energy an increase to a high potential energy and products at a lower potential energy than the peak, but a higher potential energy than the reactants. Graph B shows reactants at a high potential energy, a slight increase and then a drop to products at a lower potential energy.
Compare the activation energies of these two reactions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Reaction A requires more activation energy. Reaction B requires more activation energy. Both reactions require the same amount of activation energy, but reaction A absorbs more of this energy. Both reactions require the same amount of activation energy, but reaction B absorbs more of this energy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first reaction is endothermic because the energy for the products is higher than the reactants. while the second one is exothermic because the energy of the products is lower than the reactants.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Take a look at this \[\Delta H = Products  Reactants \] \[\Delta H < 0 exothermic \] \[\Delta H > 0 heat = ,absorbed, endothermic \] dw:1444278904776:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you notice something? the first reaction the energy for the products is greater than the reactants so it would be exothermic what about the second graph based off of what I said what would it be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think its called endothermic right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, the first reaction is endothermic so it needs to absorb energy, the second reaction is exothermic and it releases energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tbh i might be wrong when i say this but is it A/B or C/D? as in like which 2 should i look at more.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because of when it says "Both reactions require the same amount of activation energy, but reaction A absorbs more of this energy", to me it's sayings that they need the same amount of energy but one just absorbs more so i just thought it was that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because reaction A above is endothermic and it absorbs energy. they both need the same energy to get started.
