Energetically Favorable

Postby Rita Tran 2B » Mon Feb 15, 2016 4:57 pm

When looking at reaction profiles, how do you which reactions are energetically favorable? What does energetically favorable mean?

Energetically favorable reactions tend to have a negative ΔG because they decrease free energy. Being energetically favorable means the reaction releases energy and produces heat.
