In chemical thermodynamics, an endergonic reaction is a chemical reaction in
which the standard change in free energy is positive, and energy is absorbed.
Chemical reactions take place in nature as well as in living things. These
reactions often involve the exchange of energy. In this lesson, we'll study a type
Learn about the difference between endergonic and exergonic reactions and
processes and get examples of each type of reaction.
A classic example of an endergonic reaction is a synthesis reaction, where
simple molecules combine to form complex compounds. An endergonic reaction
Exergonic and Endergonic Reactions ... 2. Endergonic reactions are those in
which the free energy of the initial state is less than the free energy of the final
An energy diagram for an endergonic or nonspontaneous reaction is shown to
the right. The energy level of the products is higher than the energy level of the ...
Jul 30, 2014 ... An exergonic reaction is one in which ΔG increases, and an endergonic process
is one in which ΔG decreases. ΔG is the energy that is ...

Cells will at times couple an exergonic reaction with endergonic reactions ,
allowing them to proceed. This spontaneous shift from one reaction to another is
An endergonic reaction (also called a nonspontaneous reaction) is a chemical
reaction in which the standard change in free energy is positive and energy is ...
