Which Is The Best Definition Of Activation Energy?
A) the energy required to break the bonds of reactant molecules.
B) the energy required to end a chemical reaction.
C) the energy required to bind a substrate to an active site.
D) the energy required to re-form bonds in product molecules.
The best definition of activation energy is that activation energy is the energy required to bind a substrate to an active site (option C).
Rate Of Reactions
The rate of a chemical reaction:
- Can be defined as the speed at which the reactants are consuming.
- Also, is the speed at which the products are formed.
- The rate of a reaction is related to activation energy we need to reach for triggering the reaction.
