For this problem, we have to determine the effect of the addition of catalyst to the ΔG of the reaction
Consider the Potential Energy vs. Reaction Coordinate diagram shown to the right. For each of the following questions, circle the best answer.
If a catalyst is added,
i) ΔG° for the reaction increases
ii) ΔG° for the reaction decreases
iii) ΔG° for the reaction equals 0
iv) ΔG° for the reaction in unchanged
