In an exothermic reaction, the energy stored in the chemical bonds of the reactants is _____?

In an exothermic reaction, the energy stored in the chemical bonds of the reactants is _____

A. less than the energy stored in the bonds of the products

b. less than the heat released

c. greater than the energy stored in the bonds of the products

d. equal to the energy stored in the bonds of the products

Answer:
C is the correct answer.

Since the energy of the reactants is higher than that of the products, the excess energy must be given off to the surroundings. Remember energy cannot be created or destroyed - it must pass from one thing to another.
greater than theenergy store in the bonds of the products
c. greater than the energy stored in the bonds of the products.
C, im pretty sure, i just got done studying this in my science class
C., because in an exothermic reaction, energy is lost, therefore the energy in the reactants is less than that of the products

it is the exact opposite for an endothermic, where the reaction gains energy, and the products have more energy than the reactants
C. Greater than the energy stored in the bonds of the products because Change in H = entropy which is the amount of heat gained or lost in a reaction. If Change in H is positive, the reaction is ENDOthermic. If the Change in H is negatice, the reaction is EXOthermic because the heat from the reactants is released in a exothermic reaction. So, the energy in the reactants will always be greather than in the bonds of the products in an exothermic reaction.
