Dear ravkumarc@yahoo.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.
In chemistry, reaction coordinate is a name that refers typically to the plotting of one variable of a chemical reaction on the y-coordinate, typically energy or free energy, versus the another variable, such as extent of reaction, species concentration, reaction velocity, etc., on the x-coordinate.
You can calculate the value of respective coordinate from the plotted graph.
