Is baking a potato endothermic or exothermic?
Endothermic because you have to put heat into the potato to bake it.
Endothermic: when heat is being released to form a hot surface Exothermic: when heat is absorbed to make something cold Endothermic: happens when two or more reactants comes together and release energy Exothermic: reations occur much less frequently the exothermic Endothermic: an ex. Of an exothermic would be an explotion Exothermic: an example would be cooking or baking
If it isn't exothermic, then it's endothermic, which means the reaction requires energy to be drawn into it from its immediate surroundings. If you are holding a container with an endothermic reaction happening in it, the container will feel cool to you. Common examples of endothermic reactions are: vinegar and baking soda, photosynthesis, and dissolving any of the nitrates in water.
