Endothermic Reactions

Why does adding heat to a reaction drive product formation?

In an endothermic reaction, heat can be viewed as a reactant. Just as increasing the amount of reactants drives product formation, increasing heat in an endothermic reaction will also drive product formation.

However, remember that if the reaction is a exothermic reaction, adding heat will result in the formation of reactants

An endothermic reaction means that there will be heat as a reactant since the reaction requires heat. Increasing the heat will therefore result in the formation of products since adding more heat will lead to more product formation.

In an endothermic reaction, heat can be used to break bonds. Therefore, if you increase the heat (which could be noted as a reactant) by Le Chatelier's principle, the formation of products increases.
