At 1500 ° C , CO is formed more than at 1000 ° C. Is the reaction from left to right exothermic or endothermic?
C(s) + H2O ↔CO(g) + H2[/B]
The Attempt at a Solution
I think its Exothermic reaction . The temperature is increased from 1000°C to 1500 °C . If heat increases the CO + H2 (products) shall produced more. Heat is a product in a exothermic reaction .So
C(s) + H2 ↔CO(g) + H2 +x KJ
But correct answer seems to be endothermic. I don't know why?[/B]
