    When an endothermic reaction occurs, does the chemical absorb heat in order to become the new substance, or does the new substance form and then absorb heat?

    Is the energy absorbed constant, or will the reaction attempt to reach a specific temperature and therefore absorb as much heat as is necessary to reach that point?

    Is the reaction virtually instantaneous, or does it occur over a period of time?

    Thank you.
