A reaction profile is a diagram that shows the change in potential energy over a reaction pathway / time of a reaction. It will normally go up, reaching a climax, before falling to either a higher or lower energy level than when it started.

Reaction profiles describe the variation in potential energy as two reactants meet, form an activated complex, and separate as products.

Is this the same as the graphs we use to determine reaction rates?
