End of an endothermic reaction. Solid barium hydroxide and solid ammonium chloride have been mixed in a flask that is sitting on a damp piece of wood. As the two chemicals are mixed an endothermic, or heat-absorbing, reaction takes place and the temperature inside the beaker drops dramatically. The drop in temperature freezes the water between the flask and wooden block, sticking the two together.
