  Endothermic reaction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Chemistry an endothermic reaction is one in which the products have more energy than the reactants, and thus a net input of energy, usually in the form of heat, is required.
Endothermic reactions are often described as reactions that "feel cold", and contrast with exothermic reactions, in which heat is released.
The mixing of barium hydroxide and ammonium thiocynate causes a powerful endothermic reaction that causes the products to become so cold that the moisture from the air forms a layer of frost on the outer surface of the beaker.

Because the reaction is endothermic, it absorbs heat from its surroundings, and the ice pack can get cold enough to treat minor athletic injuries.
In general, the enthalpy of reaction for any chemical reaction is equal to the difference between the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the products and the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the reactants.

 Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions
This reaction displays the endothermic process and illustrated the interaction between changes in enthalpy and entropy is spontaneous chemical reactions.
An endothermic reaction may thus be spontaneous at constant pressure if the positive value of the heat absorbed is offset by a sufficient increase in entropy (randomness).
In the reaction between barium hydroxide octahydrate and ammonium nitrate, the large increase in entropy is related to the increase in the number of particles present and their states (remember that two solids are combining to form a solid product and some liquid).

Even though exothermic reactions usually take place spontaneously (meaning when you mix the chemicals together the chemical change happens automatically) both endothermic and exothermic reactions need a little energy push to get the reaction going.
The difference between endothermic and exothermic reactions is that in exothermic reactions, the small amount of energy needed to be put into the system to start the reaction is overwhelmed by the large amount of energy given out by the reaction.
