Today we began to learn about reaction diagrams to keep track of the energy in a chemical reaction. Both endothermic and exothermic reactions have a “bump” in the middle, because they have to go through an unstable transition state before they react. The only difference is the energy of the products relative to the reactants.
Aim: How do energy levels change in a chemical reaction?
