In a action, if the bonds in the reactants are stronger than the bonds in the product, what type of reaction is it?
It will be classified as an
For our earliest exposure to physical chemistry, we are told that the formation of bonds releases energy, whereas the breaking of bonds requires energy. The balance between bond-making and bond-breaking determines whether a reaction will be exothermic
For a combustion reaction, typically we make strong bonds with respect to the product formed, cf:
In this reaction, we break strong
In your reaction, you have proposed breaking strong
