A catalyst increases the rate of reaction by providing a different reaction medanism that has lower activation energy.

In probability theory, the conditional probability of an event A given that another event B has occurred is defined as the probability of A given B, written as P(A|B). It is a function of the probability of B, the probability of A given B, and the probability of B.
In chemistry, kinetics is the study of the rates of chemical reactions. The rate of a reaction is the change in concentration of a reactant over time. The rate of reaction is dependent on the concentration of the reactants, temperature, and the activation energy of the reaction.

Okay, so then this question asking how a catalyst increases the rate of reaction. So But let's pretend we have this reaction right here, right? You have energy. We have reactions, activation energy, and then the product. So this is excellent German reaction. So right here from here to here, we have the activation energy. And what a catalyst does is that when we add a capitalist, we create an alternative pathway to the product that has a lower activation energy. For example. Maybe we had a catalyst. And now the alternative pathway is this right? That means that this is our new activation energy. And if the activation
