Sketch the reaction profile for a reaction having Ea = 50 kJ/mol and (change in)Hrxn = -75 kJ/mol. Suppose that in the presence of a catalyst the activation energy is reduced to 25 kJ/mol. Sketch the reaction profile of the catalyzed reaction on the same sketch you drew for the uncatalyzed reaction. Make sure to label each axis, (change in)H for the reaction, and Ea for the catalyzed and uncatalyzed reactions in both the forward and reverse directions.
