5.33

on problem 5.33, why wouldn't a catalyst produce the image shown in diagram 2? Wouldn't a catalyst cause more product to form? ( I understand why all the other options are correct/incorrect.)

I think that catalysts only speed up reactions. They don't cause more product to form.

Catalysts increase the rate of the reaction, but emerge unchanged from the reaction, so they do not affect the amount of product formed.

A catalyst only increases the rate of reaction, it would not favor the formation of reactants or products.

Catalysts speed up the rate of a reaction, but they do not affect the amount of reactants or products at all.
