What are endothermic and exothermic reactions?
An exothermic reaction gives off energy to the surroundings; like a fire giving off heat. An endothermic reaction takes in energy from the surroundings; like a snowman melting.
Exothermic reactions transfer energy to the surroundings, and this energy is usually heat energy, they cause the surroundings to heat up. Just like a bonfire keeping everyone warm.
Vinegar and baking soda reaction. A thermometer is used to measure if it is endothermic or exothermic.
