Unformatted text preview: b. Enzymes are very specific 6. Using the Kinetic Molecular Theory, catalysts increase the chance molecules collide. a. Intermediate compounds arrange the surface of the substances to collide in the proper orientation. b. Transition state theory . Products and reactants are in equilibrium with an intermediate “activated complex” or “transition state.” c. Activation energy (E a ) is lowered because a “different path” to the reaction occurs; that is, the transition state (activated complex) requires lower activation energy. Catalysts...
