Exothermic vs. Endothermic Reactions Exothermic (exo = out) In a non isolated system, releases heat to surroundings. Produces a temperature increase in an isolated system Heat transferred from system to surroundings: q sys < 0 Heat of reaction q < 0 Endothermic (endo = in) In a non isolated system, absorbs heat from surroundings Produces a temperature decrease in an isolated system Heat transferred from surroundings to system: q sys > 0 Heat of reaction q > 0 System heat Surroundings System heat Surroundings
