delta G and potential energy diagrams
consider a hypothetical euilibrium that exists betwee compounds A and B at room tempretures. The activation energy for the forward reaction is (conversion of A to B) is 22 KJ/ mol. Likewise, the activation energy for the reverse process has been determined to be 34 KJ/mol.
calculate the delta G for the forward reaction and construct a potential energy diagram for the conversion of A to B. Be sure to place the transition state in accordance with the Hammond Postulate.
