I would like to know whether the heat given out in exothermic reactions is due
to conversion of mass into energy so that the mass of products is less than
that of the reatants or it is due to total internal energy of the products
(K.E. + P.E. due to different arrangements of atoms)being less than that of the
reactants. Kindly answer. Thank you.
