Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions (Experiments)

This is a series of lectures in videos covering Chemistry topics taught in High Schools.

Endothermic Reaction
In this experiment, two solids (Ammonium Nitrate and Barium Hydroxide) are added to a beaker. As they react, ammonia gas, water and Barium Nitrate are produced. This results in a large increase in entropy, which is the measure of randomness in a system. This causes the temperature to drop, as there is an increase in Enthalpy.
