After performing the experiment described below, I have the following questions regarding this experiment:1. What thermodynamic sign does activation energy (EA) have? What does this signify?2. The reaction did not start until the contents of the boiling tubes are mixed, is it because sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst in this experiment as it lowers the activation energy between the reactants and the products?3. What is the function of the methyl red in this experiment?
