Activation Energy - In this video Paul Andersen explains how the activation energy is a measure of the amount of energy required for a chemical reaction to occur. Due to the collision theory the activation energy requires proper energy and orientation of the colliding molecules. The Maxwell-Boltzman distribution can be used to determine the number of particles above and below this point.
Activation energy is the energy that must be overcome for a chemical reaction to occur. Here, the sparks generated by striking steel against a flint provide the activation energy to initiate combustion in a Bunsen burner. The blue flame will sustain itself after the sparks are extinguished because the continued combustion of the flame is now energetically favorable.
From magickaltheory: This original graphic was created by me, Synnah Hermetica, as a part of my magickal study of energetic manipulation. Here the apprentice can observe the chakras mapped out with their corresponding elements and attributes for activation and stimulation. The grey text represents the channel that the energies use to travel through in relation to one another. Please do not remove this text.
