    Chemistry: Compounds in Equilibrium

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Compounds A and B are in equilibrium. For the reaction A --> B, E_s is 15 kcal/mol (62.8 kj/mol) and delta H in degrees is 12 kcal/mol (50.2 kj/mol). Draw a reaction profile diagram for this equilibrium. What are the E_s and delta H in degrees values for the reaction B --> A? What are the percentages of A and B in the reaction mixture at 25 degrees Celsius (assuming delta G = delta H approximately)? (See attachment for illustrations.)
