How is energy involved in chemical and physical changes ?

No comments

Physical and chemical changes are associated with energy changes.

For this we have to understand the type of changes.

1. Exothermic :- These are the changes that release energy when they occur .

2. Endothermic :- The changes that occur by absorbing the energy are the endothermic .

In case of chemical change the reaction proceeds by crossing an energy barrier.

for the conversion of reactant into products there is a minimum required energy that is called threshold energy. If the reactant do not have threshold energy , the reaction will not take place.
