  1. (a) How many steps are in the mechanism for the reaction described by this diagram?
  2. (b) Is the reaction overall exothermic or endothermic?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The number of steps in the mechanism for the reaction should be determined from the diagram.

Concept introduction:

Energy profile diagram: It is diagrammatic representation of the reaction pathway which is depicted along the reaction coordinates that is energy and time as the reactions proceeds in product formation.

Explanation

The diagram is given below:

  

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The reaction is whether exothermic or endothermic should be determined from the diagram.

Concept introduction:

Energy profile diagram: It is diagrammatic representation of the reaction pathway which is depicted along the reaction coordinates that is energy and time as the reactions proceeds in product formation.

Exothermic reaction: The reaction is termed as exothermic reaction if energy is released in the form of heat from the reaction system to the surroundings.

Endothermic reaction: The reaction is termed as endothermic reaction when energy is absorbed from the surroundings in order to accomplish the reaction.
