Worksheet: Exothermic and Endothermic Reactions

In this worksheet, we will practice describing exothermic and endothermic reactions and examining the energy transfers involved.

Q1:

A chemical reaction has a reaction enthalpy of +430 kJ/mol. Is it endothermic or exothermic?

  • A Endothermic
  • B Exothermic

Q2:

Which of the following is the best definition of an exothermic reaction?

  • A A reaction that is spontaneous
  • B A reaction that absorbs heat
  • C A reaction that is accelerated by cooling
  • D A reaction that gives out heat
  • E A reaction that is accelerated by heating

Q3:

A chemical reaction has a reaction enthalpy of 5 1 2 kJ/mol. Is it endothermic or exothermic?

  • A Exothermic
  • B Endothermic

Q4:

Which of the following is the best definition of an endothermic reaction?

  • A A reaction that is spontaneous
  • B A reaction that gives out heat
  • C A reaction that is accelerated by cooling
  • D A reaction that absorbs heat
  • E A reaction that is accelerated by heating
