change in temperature

Postby Angela_Kim_1N » Sat Nov 26, 2016 8:04 pm

How does changing temperature affect a reaction?
I know that if a reaction is endothermic then it will favor products and if a reaction is exothermic it favors reactants forming.
But what does that exactly mean?

Thank you!

Like you said, if a reaction is endothermic, it means it requires heat while forming a product. Therefore, increasing the temperature will favor product formation because it requires heat.If a reaction is exothermic, it means a reaction gives off heat. Therefore by increasing the temperature, it will favor the reactant formation.

Does temperature also affect the K value, the equilibrium constant?
