Endothermic or exothermic

Postby Blake_Panter_3D » Fri Dec 02, 2016 11:37 am

For a reaction when temperature increases and Kc increases, is the reaction exothermic or endothermic? Why?

Hi! When the Kc increases along with the temperature, the reaction is endothermic because Kc and temperature have an inverse relationship for exothermic reactions, whereas Kc and temperature have a directly proportional relationship for endothermic reactions. Hope this helps!
