Energy of the reactants

Postby 504999222 » Sat Jan 25, 2020 8:38 pm

When the energy of the products is greater than the energy of the reactants, what is true about the reaction?

The reaction is endothermic, as it has taken in energy in the process of the reaction.

So in this case, visually the reaction's energy looks like this.

The energy of the products being higher than the reactants is due to the products absorbing heat from their surroundings, meaning the reaction is an endothermic reaction.

If the energy of the products is greater than that of the reactants, then it can be said that the reaction is endothermic.

The reaction is endothermic. Energy has to have been absorbed in order for the products to have a higher energy than the reactants.

It's an endergonic reaction since the reactants have less energy
