1. For any given reaction under a fixed set of conditions in which we take the forward pathway of lowest energy, which of the following must always be true according to the Principle of Microscopic Reversibility?
The same steps run backward represent the highest energy pathway for the reverse reaction.
The same steps run backward represent the lowest energy pathway for the reverse reaction.
We don't know the reverse pathway, so we can't determine its energy.
The amount of energy required to go in the forward direction is the same as that required to go in the backward direction.
