I don't understand this question... Which side of the chemical equation would energy be located on in an endothermic reaction? I understand that in an endothermic reaction it absorbes energy.

  • Science -

    I'm pretty sure you're going to find that the energy is transferred to the product side of your equation, aka the right side of the equation.

  • Science -

    Since you have to ADD energy to the reactants in an endothermic reaction, the energy is on the left side:

    something + energy = something

  • Science -

    oops that's right I missunderstood the question.
