1 Chemical reactions are reversible; they can proceed in both the forward and  reverse directions. If the  Δ G °  for the reaction Y X is energetically favorable,  how can you explain the fact that not all of the Y molecules will be converted to X molecules? 2 Enzymes A and B catalyze different reactions, but use the same reactant  molecule as a substrate. The graph in Figure Q3-47 presents the reaction rates

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
