I'm trying to explain how a change in temperature favours an endothermic/exothermic reaction from a collision theory point of view, but I'm not really familiar with the concept just yet. For an increase in temperature, can I say that:
An increase in temperature leads to a greater frequency of collisions between reactants and products, leading to an increased rate of reaction. Since the rate of the endothermic reaction increases more than the exothermic reaction, the equilibrium shifts towards the reactants/products.
If this is right, I'm struggling to see why the endothermic reaction rate will increase more with this logic. The exothermic reaction has a lower activation energy, so shouldn't its rate of reaction increase more than endothermic since it has a lower energy requirement to complete the reaction? Unless the increase in particles with enough energy for the exothermic reaction is comparatively lower to the increase in particles with enough energy for the endothermic reaction (aka proportion)?
