Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by a Canadian on Monday, February 18, 2013 at 11:24pm.

Firstly, is this right?:

Exothermic reactions have a negative enthalpy change value because the enthalpy of the reactants are greater than the enthalpy of the products *since the reactants have weaker bonds.*

(especially the starred part, I'm wondering about)

If so, how come weaker bonds means higher energy/enthalpy?
