The intermediates line in reaction profiles

Postby Justin Le 2I » Tue Mar 03, 2015 1:03 am

In Dr. Lavelle's lecture, he said the dashed line of the intermediates for reaction profiles in the course reader should be lowered to the same line as reactants. However, the intro to ochem book and the answers for the homework problems do not do this. Which is right?

If this is the type of reaction profile you mean, the dashed horizontal lines are just there to help in reading the graph. Here there's one for both reactant level and for intermediate level.
