When a reaction is endothermic


Question

When a reaction is endothermic

Options

A) Enthalpy change, ΔH is negative

B) Heat content of a product is less than the heat content of a reactant

C) Heat content of reactants is less than the heat content of products

D) The reaction is non-spontaneous


The correct answer is C.

Explanation:

Endothermic reactions need heat, so, after the reaction has taken place, the solution will take in or absorb all available heat, thereby making the heat content of the product much more than that of the reactant.

  • Enthalpy is given as Heat of product-Heat of reactant
    If the heat of reactant is lesser than that of the product,the enthalpy will be positive,and positive enthalpy signifies an endothermic reaction.
