Any elements or compounds in existence within a specific system needs the energy to maintain its state. If a compound wants to change to another product they need to release or absorb heat to meet the requirement of the new products. Exothermic reaction If the level of energy of the product is less than… Read More »Exothermic & Endothermic Reactions
