# What are the characteristics of an endothermic reaction?

Jan 15, 2018

In an endothermic reaction, heat energy is used up in the reaction.Thus after the reaction temperature decreases.

#### Explanation:

This is because the energy used for breaking the bonds is more than the energy released during the reaction.

#### Explanation:

Endothermic reactions are those reaction which requires heat to occur .
Some reactions do occur only at some minimum temperature which is above room temperature .

The temperature lowers down after the reaction , this change is usually detected by clinical thermometer in some lab experiments .
This reaction takes energy from the surroundings , the heat can be in form of heat or light or may be whatever!
