Nonspontaneous processes

Postby manasa933 » Fri Feb 02, 2018 2:40 pm

Can non-spontaneous processes only be done by work or also heat?

Non-spontaneous processes can be done by both work and heat.

An endergonic reaction (aka a nonspontaneous reaction) is one in which the standard change in free energy is positive and energy (in the form of work, heat, etc) is absorbed.
