  • Bond Energies
    • Energy must always be supplied to break bonds
      • break bonds = endothermic process
        • energy is used to break bonds greater than energy released by forming them
    • Energy is released when bonds are formed
      • bonds form = exothermic process
        • energy released by forming bonds is greater than the energy used to break em
    • every chemical has specific bond energy.
      • bond energy varies with compound
    • total energy change = energy required to break bonds - energy released by forming bonds
      • + energy change = endothermic reaction
      • - energy change = exothermic reaction
