### Drawing reaction profiles

When drawing profiles, how do we draw the troughs of multiple mechanisms? Don't we have to know whether each step is exo/endothermic, and do we have to know something about stability?

I think we would be asked to draw them in accordance to their steps, meaning a slow step will have a different looking trough than a fast step.

The height of the waves depend on Ea, don't they? (higher = slower, lower = faster)
