### Transition State

What is the transition state and where does it go on the profile?

Transitions states are the hills, or local maxims, of a reaction profile diagram, and these states are where the bonds of the chemicals are being broken and reformed, having high energy.

The transition sates are the peaks of your profile. Let's say you have two steps and you have an intermediate. The first peak would be your reactants going to your intermediate that is your fist transition state. Your second would be your intermediates going to your products.
