Explain why an investment of activation energy is necessary to initiate a spontaneous reaction? idea. I have the same question...... But after reading my text, I'm pretty sure its to do with the fact that there is an energy barrier between the reactant and products that must be overcome in order for the reaction to proceed, which is what activation energy basically is, the amount of energy needed to jumpstart the process. !
