Is the dissolving process exothermic or endothermic? Explain.
Exothermic and Endothermic Reactions:
Exothermic reactions release heat, which means the enthalpy of the reactants of the reaction is higher than that of the products. On the other hand, the level of enthalpy of the products is higher than the reactants in endothermic reactions meaning that endothermic reactions absorb heat.
Answer and Explanation: 1
Dissolving can either be exothermic or endothermic. If the dissolution reaction is endothermic then dissolving is endothermic. In endothermic...
