Recall the meaning of the + and - sign on ΔH:
If the reaction absorbs heat → consumes heat from the surroundings → endothermic → +ΔH
If the reaction releases heat → system gives off heat to its surroundings → exothermic → -ΔH
Indicate the sign of ΔH for the following processes.
a. natural gas burning on a stove
b. isopropyl alcohol evaporating from skin
c. water condensing from steam
