Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction graph is given as (for example) :

Chemistry homework question answer, step 1, image 1

In the case of an endothermic reaction (where energy is absorbed), the reactants are at a lower energy level compared to the products.

In the case of an exothermic reaction (where energy is released),  the reactants are at a higher energy level as compared to the products.

Step 2

The given reaction graph is :

Chemistry homework question answer, step 2, image 1

 

Since, the reactants is at a lower energy level as compared to the products, so this reaction is endothermic. Therefore, the reaction absorbs energy.

Step 3

There are 2 transition states occurring during this reaction.
