    I'm not sure how to answer the question: During any chemical reaction old bonds are broken and new bonds are made. Explain how this breaking and making of bonds leads to the change being exothermic?

    I know that when bonds are broken they absorb energy and that when they're made they release energy and if more energy is released when making bonds than energy is taken in, its exothermic but I'm not sure if thats the answer.
