Reaction Rate and Catalysts

APCHEM-L0EYKU

Which of the following does NOT show how a catalyst increases the overall rate of a reaction?

A

A catalyst creates multiple different pathways that are used simultaneously by a reaction, allowing for numerous different reactions to occur in tandem.

B

A catalyst creates a more stable intermediate, resulting in a lower overall energy for the reaction.

C

A catalyst stabilizes a transition state that results in a lower overall energy for the system.

D

A catalyst changes the reaction mechanism to a lower activation energy pathway.
