Electrophilic Addition Reactions exothermic?

Postby stephanieyang_3F » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:12 am

This is something I thought about while doing 4.29, but I'm just wondering, are electrophilic addition reactions and SN2 reactions usually exothermic/exergonic? If they weren't, when would be a time where they would be endothermic/endergonic?

They are mostly exothermic/exergonic since the bonds formed are ususally stronger (more favorable) than the ones broken
