Definition of Product (chemistry)

Product (chemistry) Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Product(s) are formed during chemical reactions as reagents are consumed. Products have lower energy than the reagents and are produced during the reaction according to the second law of thermodynamics. The released energy comes from changes in chemical bonds between atoms in reagent molecules and may be given off in the form of heat or light. Products are formed as the chemical reaction progresses toward chemical equilibrium at a certain reaction rate, which depends on the reagents and environmental conditions.
