- 1) II., where the meaning of the expression endothermic is explained.
- 2) Compounds are therefore of two kinds: those which absorb heat during their preparation, and consequently liberate heat when they are decomposed -- such being termed endothermic; and those which evolve heat during their preparation, and consequently absorb heat when they are decomposed -- such being called exothermic.
- 3) Let them contract again and, in a socalled endothermic reaction, they cool down.
- 4) This process is endothermic, meaning it absorbs thermal energy from its surroundings, decreasing the temperature and eliminating the fire. [wiki]
- 5) The toxic action of the impurities of crude acetylene is discussed in Chapter V. Acetylene is an "endothermic" compound, as has been mentioned in Chapter
- 6) The Namir - meaning 'tiger' - is a joint development between Frazer-Nash Research and Giugiaro and uses a 814cc "endothermic" rotary engine to charge a 400V 108-cell lithium-ion battery pack that is, in turn, hooked up to four electric motors - two per axle - that together generate 362bhp (270kW).
- 7) I wasnâ€ ™ t very good in thermodynamics, but my guess is that the cloak is endothermic somehow, and it sucked all the heat from inside the bubble.
- 8) Apparently, there was an overload in the Jónsson Alignment Compensators, which caused the endothermic vacuum inducers in Montana, Colorado, and Utah to change their focus angle.
- 9) • The massive Sigurðsson-Björk subterranean endothermic induction “vacuum” to remotely suck the heat energy from the magma chamber,
- 10) ‘Solar receivers absorb this concentrated solar radiation and deliver it, in the form of high-temperature heat, to a chemical reactor wherein an endothermic reaction results in the production of solar fuels.’
- 11) ‘A reaction which has a positive value for this is an endothermic reaction and requires heat.’
- 12) ‘This process is endothermic, pulling heat from its surroundings.’
- 13) ‘Evaporation is an endothermic process, so the heat inside the refrigerator is absorbed by the coil and the refrigerator is cooled.’
- 14) ‘It is fully reversible with the temperature and displays in heating direction as a small endothermic event.’
- 15) ‘However this strategy is not feasible for endothermic herbivores with a rapid metabolic rate and having limited time available to extract energy and nutrients.’
- 16) ‘This bone structure similarity shows that dinosaurs were endothermic.’
- 17) ‘The larger an endothermic animal, the more heat it generates relative to the surface area of its body.’
- 18) ‘For example, one might think that skeletal growth rates would be higher for an endothermic animal than for an ectothermic, or cold-blooded, one.’
- 19) ‘According to this scenario, also like mammals and birds, they must have been endothermic, or nearly so.’
- 1) So when you actually generate the chloroform, that chemical reaction is what ` s called exothermic, so it generates quite a good deal of heat, and that heat can get out of hand.
- 2) This reaction is exothermic, that is, it releases heat, and will occur spontaneously in the presence of a nickel or ruthenium catalyst nickel is cheaper, ruthenium is better.
- 3) This process is exothermic, meaning that it releases heat.
- 4) 'exothermic' process that can raise the starting temperature of 650 degrees by another 200 degrees.
- 5) The word that comes to mind is exothermic, the first nanoseconds of an explosion splintering into white-hot fractal fissures.
- 6) Great lessons there on thermochemistry, especially what an exothermic reaction is
- 7) I won't mention proportions or how to trigger it - this is a highly exothermic and dangerous reaction ..
- 8) ‘Sodium hydroxide dissolved into water is an exothermic process, ammonium nitrate dissolved in water is an endothermic process.’
- 9) ‘The rusting of iron is an exothermic reaction and this process is used in hand warmers which are utilized in cold regions.’
- 10) ‘When fireworks are ignited, the chemical compounds react with each other in an exothermic reaction - releasing energy.’
- 11) ‘For these exothermic processes, the solubility decreases with an increase in temperature.’
- 12) ‘Inside the mold, the liquid undergoes an exothermic chemical reaction, which forms the polyurethane polymer in the mold.’
