Thermodynamic control means usually the activation barrier is low, kinetic control is when activation barrier is high.

Here is a youtube video that goes over the difference between thermodynamic and kinetic control.

Will we need to know these types of problems for Quiz 2 or can we disregard any problem that has to do with temperature?
