    Compare the activation energy to the overall energy change of the reaction. The amount of energy absorbed by this reaction is smaller than the amount of activation energy required. The amount of energy absorbed by this reaction is larger than the amount of activation energy required. The amount of energy released by this reaction is smaller than the amount of activation energy required. The amount of energy released by this reaction is larger than the amount of activation energy required.

    First, do the reactants or products have more energy?

    Ok, so, since reactants have more energy, is energy absorbed or released?

    Yep, since also the activation energy is smaller than the amount of energy released.

    Which is an example of an exothermic process? A beaker feels cools when chemicals in it react. A hot pack feels warm when chemicals in it combine. Plants use the sun's energy for photosynthesis. You can fry an egg by heating it on a stove.
