<br>The activation energy is the minimum amount of energy that the reacting molecules must pocess before the reaction will proceed.
<br>Chemical reactions take place with changes in energy. This energy change is symbolised as DH, the HEAT OF REACTION. The energy change is often discerned by the senses as heat.
<br>DH is the DIFFERENCE between the energy of the products and the energy of the reactants.
<br>To calculate the heat of ...
