5.33

On problem number 33 at the end of chapter 5, why would increasing the temperature increase the formation of X? I thought there would be no change.

It would increase the formation of X because the reaction is endothermic and an increase in the temperature would increase the k value. This means an increase in the number of products.

Because the reaction is endothermic, it favors the formation of the product, X.

The chemical reaction is an endothermic reaction because it's breaking the bond of one molecule to separate it into two molecules. Therefore, increasing the temperature will lead the reaction to shift to the product side.

The breaking of a bond requires energy to do, so increasing the temperature, and as a result increasing the energy, of the reaction would cause more X to form.

How would you know it’s endothermic? Is it because breaking a halogen apart requires heat?
