### 65.b

Could we know the reaction is endothermic without plotting a graph?

Yes you can determine that the reaction is endothermic because the formation of one product is favored over that one product being broken up into two different molecules

You could also determine the reaction is endothermic from the fact that the activation energy of the forward reaction is greater than that of the reverse reaction. Were it the opposite, the reaction would be exothermic.
