### Reaction Mechanisms

If given reaction mechanisms, can you tell whether the reaction is exothermic? If so, how?

### Re: Reaction Mechanisms

Please give an example of what you saw. Usually, reaction mechanisms are not used to judge if a reaction is endo or exothermic

### Re: Reaction Mechanisms

If you know the spontaneity then you can possibly use the change in moles to assume the enthalpy. I don't think this would ever come up though
