The balanced equation below represents a molecule of bromine separating into two bromine atoms.

Br2-->Br + Br What occurs during this change?
(1) Energy is absorbed and a bond is formed.
(2) Energy is absorbed and a bond is broken.
(3) Energy is released and a bond is formed.
(4) Energy is released and a bond is broken.

(4) Energy is released and a bond is broken.
