Endothermic  vs Exothermic reactions

The endothermic process is a term that describes a reaction where the system absorbs the energy from its surrounding in the form of heat.

A few examples of the endothermic process are photosynthesis, evaporating liquids, melting ice, dry ice, alkane cracking

As the name implies, ‘endo’ means ‘to absorb,’ and ‘thermic’ means ‘heat.’

The exothermic reaction is the opposite of an endothermic reaction. It releases energy by light or heat to its surrounding.

A few examples are neutralisation, burning a substance, reactions of fuels, deposition of dry ice, respiration, solution of sulphuric acid into water and much more.

The term ‘Exo’ refers to ‘to release,’ and ‘thermic’ refers to ‘heat.’
