Increasing the temperature increases the average energy of the starting materials. A sufficient increase in this average energy could, given the distribution of energies of the starting materials, give some of them sufficient energy to overcome the activation energy barrier. 4. In favor of use— a. The unity principle states that organisms are fundamentally the same with regard to their molecules and processes. Thus it is reasonable to assume that a drug that performs a certain function in monkeys would perform the same function in humans. b.
