Q. Which of the following is NOT true about enzymes?
They lower the activation energy of a reaction.
They are not consumed during the reaction.
They are not modified in the course of a reaction.
They speed up the rate of the reaction.

Q. If you know that a reaction greatly increases the entropy of a system,
then you know that the ΔG of the reaction must be negative.
then you know that the ΔG of the reaction must be positive.
the reaction will proceed spontaneously.
the reaction will not proceed spontaneously.
the reaction will likely proceed spontaneously, but you still need to take into account the ΔH value.
