Exothermic reactions

A chemical reaction in which heat is given out is called an exothermic reaction. It causes a rise in temperature.

Respiration, rusting, burning of coal, petrol and kerosene are some common examples of exothermic reactions.


A lot of heat is produced when carbon burns in oxygen to form carbon dioxide.

A chemical reaction in which heat is absorbed is called an endothermic reaction.

It causes a fall in temperature.


When nitrogen and oxygen are heated to a temperature of about 3000°C, nitric oxide gas is formed. This is an endothermic reaction.
