Problem

Increasing the temperature of a system at equilibrium

a. favors the endothermic reaction and increases the rate of the endothermic and exothermic reactions

b. favors the exothermic reaction and increases the rate of the exothermic reaction and decreases the rate of the endothermic reaction

c. favors the exothermic reaction and increases the rate of the endothermic and exothermic reactions

d. favors the endothermic reaction and decreases the rate of the endothermic and exothermic reactions

e. favors the endothermic reaction and increases the rate of the endothermic reaction and decreases the rate of the exothermic reaction

Solution

We are asked what does increasing the temperature of a system at equilibrium do.


When a reaction is exothermic, the system or the reaction is releasing heat to the surroundings.

When a reaction is endothermic, the system or the reaction is absorbing heat from the surroundings.
