Work Step by Step

Activation energy is not a function of temperature and higher temperatures do not provide alternate reaction paths. Pressure has a rather weak effect on reaction rates. The energy of molecules is a distribution, and increasing the temperature, molecules will have energy higher than the activation energy.
