Reaction profile diagrams



In this video, you will learn how to draw simple reaction profiles (energy level diagrams) for exothermic and endothermic reactions, and label them appropriately, showing the relative energies of reactants and products, the activation energy and the overall energy change, with a curved arrow to show the energy as the reaction proceeds.

Key Words

reactants, products, exothermic, endothermic, activation energy
