What is an Endothermic reaction? Is energy given off or taken in? 

1 of 7

Energy is taken in from the surroundings

2 of 7

Endothermic Closed System

In a closed system, what happens to the yield when there is an increase in temperature for an endothermic reaction? 

What happens when the temperature is increased? 

5 of 7

An increase in temperature increases the yield or an endothermic reaction in a closed system. 

A decrease in temperature decreases the yield.

  • increased?
  • decreased?
