method 2

Postby alanaarchbold » Sat Jan 26, 2019 4:55 pm

In method 2 I just wanted to confirm. So when the bonds break on the reactant side that releases energy right? But then it requires energy to form the new bonds on the product side? Does it take the energy from the broken bonds and then is whatever that's left over the net enthalpy?

You have it flipped. It requires energy to break the bonds on the reactant side, and it releases energy when bonds are formed on the product side.

you have to put in energy in order to break bonds. when bonds form, they go to a more stable state so energy is released
