1 Answer

Condensation is generally exothermic in that the material doing the condensing will be giving up thermal energy to do so. And giving up heat energy is the exit of thermal energy, hence the name exothermic. The atoms or molecules of this consate give up some of their kinetic energy, their energy of atomic or molecular motion, that thermal energy, to condense. more
