Problem: Label the following processes as exothermic or endothermic:forming solvent-solute interactions from separated particles

FREE Expert Solution

We have to describe whether the formation of solvent-solute interactions from separated particles is an endothermic or exothermic process.


The formation of a solution takes place in multiple stages. The solute particles need to be separated from each other before they can be surrounded by the solvent particles.

The process in which solute particles are surrounded by solvent particles is called solvation.
