Why Do Exothermic Reactions Prefer Cold TempsWatch
And I already know that if it's a reversible reaction the reverse of the reaction will be endothermic if the forward reaction is exothermic, just trying to get my head round this.
I think it would make more sense if it was the same as pressure as in a higher temp pushes the equilibrium towards the end with fewer moles, because higher temps mean higher pressure?
If you heat up a mixture it will try to cool itself down again - by favouring the endothermic reaction (takes in heat).
If you cool down a mixture it will try to warm itself up - by favouring the exothermic reaction (gives out heat).
Does that help?
