HideShow resource information
What is an exothermic reaction?
An exothermic reaction is one which transfers energy to the surroundings, usualy in the form of ehat and usually shown as a rise in temperature.
1 of 5
Give some examples of exothermic reactions.
Burning fuels, neutralisation reactions, oxidation reactions.
2 of 5
What is an endothermic reaction?
An endothermic reaction is one which takes energy from the surroundings, usually in the form of heat and is usually shown by a fall in temperature.
3 of 5
Give an example of an endothermic reaction.
Thermal decomposition.
4 of 5
How is this relevant in reversible reactions?
One side will be endothermic and one side will be exothermic.
