Today we tackled the basic vocabulary of thermodynamics (“thermo” to its friends). There are two types of reactions, as far as thermo goes: endothermic and exothermic. Endothermic reactions absorb energy from the surroundings, and exothermic reactions release energy into the surroundings. Please look over the presentation for more information.
Aim: How do we handle energy transfers in chemical equations?
