Enthalpy of Phase Changes

Postby Arianna_Mandelli_3C » Sun Jan 15, 2017 6:53 pm

Would the value of enthalpy of condensation of a substance be the same value of the enthalpy of vaporization except with the opposite sign?

What about enthalpy being a state property makes it so that the reverse and forward processes for enthalpy changes are equal but with opposite signs?
