exothermic

 [ek″so-ther´mik]
marked or accompanied by the evolution of heat; liberating heat or energy.

ex·o·ther·mic

(ek'sō-ther'mik),
1. Denoting a chemical reaction during which heat (that is, enthalpy) is emitted. Compare: endothermic.
2. Relating to the external warmth of the body.
[exo- + G. thermē, heat]

ex·o·ther·mic

(eks'ō-thĕr'mik)

Compare: endothermic
2. Relating to the external warmth of the body.

The exothermic band of AP containing complexes 1-3 showed multiple broad and flat peaks, suggesting a complicated mechanism of decomposition.
In addition, a sharp exothermic DTA peak around 700[degrees]C can be attributed to the oxidation of SnS to Sn[O.sub.2].
It is well explained by the results of the previous hydration heat that the five kinds of esters make the cement hydration induction end time longer and postpone the second exothermic peak, that is, the esters have a delayed effect on the hydration reaction rate at the early stage of cement (hydration induction period and the acceleration period).
The calculated activation energy for the shown exothermic events, according to the standard ASTM E698-11[17], were obtained using the angular coefficients values with support of Arrhenius equation [19].
In contrast, exothermic peak temperatures of the studied kaolins were lower than those for Makoro and Kgwakgwe.
So upon AN thermolysis in the cuvette of 5 mm in diameter at the temperature range 280.350[degrees]C the signal of measuring thermocouple detects mainly endothermic processes corresponding to reactions (4) and (6), showing almost no exothermic processes implemented in the gas phase.
The OZSBO/pMDI resins with eq-MRs of 1:0.5, 1:0.75, and 1:1 exhibited exothermic reactions at 150[degrees]C, eqMRs of 1:2 and 1:3 showed exothermic peaks at 185[degrees]C, and an eq-MR of 1:4 presented an exothermic peak at 180[degrees]C.
This would then be followed by an exothermic step involving the expulsion of an activated ion, [CHS-HA.sup.+n*] [right arrow] CHS-H + [A.sup.+n*], followed by the line emission from the cation, [A.sup.+n*], [A.sup.+n*] [right arrow] [A.sup.+] + hv.
We observe from Figures 4 and 5 that velocity and temperature profiles increase with the increasing values of [lambda] for exothermic reaction, but opposite effects are found in these figures for endothermic reaction.

The mini-riser products use ASK's Exactcast coldbox technology, which replaces the sand-based exothermic formulation with an insulating mix of low density refractory material, reducing riser weight by 75%.
N0150 diaphragm pumps can be customized with water-cooled heads to prevent pump overheating in process applications where exothermic reactions from helium, xenon, and other gases may produce excessive heat and potentially shorten pump service life.
