7. The diagram shows the energy profile for a chemical reaction.

8. What is the correct description of the reaction?

9. Which reaction profile shows the fastest exothermic reaction?

10. The energy profile diagram shows the pathways for a reaction with and without a catalyst.
Which energy change is the activation energy for the catalysed reaction?

11. Hydrogen reacts with the halogens to form hydrogen halides.

Bond energy is the amount of energy, in kJ, that must be supplied (endothermic) to break one
mole of a bond.

Use the above data to show that the following reaction is exothermic.

12 Look at this reaction:

NaOH (aq) + HCl (aq)

NaCl (aq) + H2O ( l )

a It is exothermic. What does that mean?

b What will happen to the temperature of the solution, as the chemicals react?

c Draw an energy diagram for the reaction.

13.Fuel cells are often taken into space to supply energy. They turn the energy of a fuel directly into
Give three reasons why fuel cells are more suitable than dry cells for use in spacecraf

What is the main way in which fuel cells differ from other electrochemical cells?

Write an equation for the overall reaction taking place in a fuel cell.
