Activation Energy

One important aspect of all chemical reactions is their activation energy -- the amount of energy needed to actually initiate the reaction. In this worksheet, students will look at enthalpy graphs and measure the activation energy of a reaction. They will also see the effect that a catalyst has on activation energy.

Essential concepts: Energy, heat, enthalpy, activation energy, potential energy, exothermic, endothermic.
