# Giving too much energy to an exothermic reaction [closed]

What will happen in an exothermic reaction if more than required energy is given? I mean, will it produce even more energy which will be highly dangerous or nothing will happen according to Le Chatelier's principle (as we are trying to carry the reaction in an opposite direction)?

• Looks like you are wondering how thermal runaway (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_runaway) can happen if exothermic reactions become less favorable with increasing T (given relation between K and $\Delta H$ according to the vant Hoff equation – Buck Thorn Nov 9 at 21:15
