State whether each of the following will increase,decrease or unchange when catalyst is added to the reaction and give an explanation for your answer please a) rate of reaction b)activation energy c)reaction enthalpy d)equilibrium of reaction

  • chemistry -

    A catalyst lowers the activation energy, generally through the formation of an intermediate complex. A catalyst does not change delta H nor Keq.
