Equation Transcription:

Text Transcription:

delta H

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 21Q

Step 1:

Here, we have to state if  the melting of ice endothermic or exothermic? And mention the sign of ∆H for the melting of ice and for the freezing of water.

So first let’s see what is endothermic and exothermic process :

Endothermic process is a process or reaction in which the system absorbs energy from the surroundings in the form of heat.

Exothermic process is viceversa, It is the process or reaction in which the system gives out the energy to the surroundings in the form of heat.
