Endothermic Reaction Exothermic Reaction

● Energy has been taken in ● Energy has been released
● Delta H is positive ● Delta H is negative
● Starts with less energy ● Starts with more energy in reactants
● End products absorbed energy ● End products have less energy due to
● Enthalpy change of the reaction is positive the release of it
because energy is being taken in from ● Enthalpy change is negative as heat is
surroundings which results in temperature lost to the surroundings resulting in
decrease temperature increase

Delta H- H represents enthalpy and delta represents change, so the absorption or release of heat
determines whether Delta H will be positive or negative
Enthalpy-measurement of energy in thermodynamic system, also it is equal to the internal energy of the
system plus the product of pressure and volume
