For question 5J.11 we are predicting which way the equilibrium shifts with a temperature increase.
(b)X2(g)⇌2X(g) where X is a halogen
The answer states that because the reaction is endothermic we know that it shifts towards products. How would we determine that this reaction is endothermic?

I think its because it shows that the bonds are being broken because X2 becomes separate Xs and to break a bond it requires energy (endothermic), at least thats how I thought about it
