So just to clarify, Exergonic and endergonic refer to Gibb's free energy whereas exothermic and endothermic only have to do with heat?

Endergonic/Exergonic refer to Gibbs Free Energy.
Endothermic/Exothermic refer to enthalpy.

Yes. Remember in regards to the graphs. It helps!

I find it helpful to remember the whole exergonic thing by thinking exerGonic -> G(ibbs free energy)! I don't know if anyone would find this useful but it sure helps me keep the terms straight :)

How do we compare these terms to graphs / visually?

yeah, the first 2 terms are for gibbs and the later 2 are for heat.

Hello! For reactions that are endothermic/endergonic, there will be more energy on the products side of the reaction and for reactions that are exothermic/exergonic, there will be more energy on the reactants side.

Here’s a graph of the two: https://chembossenergy.weebly.com/uploa ... 8_orig.gif

Hope this helps!

Endergonic and exergonic refer to changes in free energy (delta G). Endothermic and exothermic refer to changes in internal energy of molecules, measured as heat given off or taken up (delta H).

ender and exer for gibbs. endo and exo is for enthalpy
