What does an endothermic reaction do?
There are two types of reactions, thermally. Endothermic and exothermic. An endothermic reaction absorbs heat and an exothermic reaction releases it.
An endothermic reaction is one in which thermal energy, or heat, is absorbed. If heat is absorbed in the reaction process, it is endothermic. By monitoring the temperature of the reactants in a reaction, an observer could identify an endothermic reaction through observation of a decrease in the temperature.
Explain what it means for a reaction to be endothermic and what would happen to the temperature recorded by a thermometer in an endothermic reaction?
Is the reaction involved in dissolving ammonium chloride in water an endothermic reaction or an exothermic reaction?
A liquid on its own cannot be described as either endothermic or exothermic. The terms endothermic and exothermic are the names of two opposite process reactions. An endothermic reaction absorbs heat and and exothermic reaction gives off heat. A liquid can be involved in either an endothermic reaction or in an exothermic reaction. If you are evaporating a liquid from its liquid phase to its gas phase, then the reaction is usually endothermic and vice…
