Another EK error: Is evaporation exothermic or endothermic? I'm pretty sure it's endothermic, but please confirm

Quoting this sentence indigenous EK 10th Bio 2 (Systems) book. The object is about how the respiratory system serves together a thermoregulator.

You are watching: Is evaporation endothermic

\"Evaporation is an exothermic process, so it has actually a cooling result on the body.\"

This sound absolutely false. As soon as I'm confused, I normally think around ice. Girlfriend need heat to melt ice, so melting of ice is endothermic which is one expansive phase readjust (solid to liquid). And also with the logic so too is evaporation. Can someone you re welcome confirm?

This also explains the cooling effect. Her body is hot and \"inputs energy\" right into the water come evaporate it. The evaporation basically takes several of that energy and also cools you. Sweating works the exact same way.

I've noticed numerous mistakes and also errors, but none as big as this one and also now i am worried that my researching is in vain (no pun intended) if ns missed points which space as glaringly problematic is this.

You room right- evaporation is an endothermic process because water molecules have to take in energy/heat in order come “evaporate” into gas molecules

You’re right. If it were exothermic it i will not ~ make feeling by their logic. Since exothermic reactions provide heat off to surroundings, the water on our skin would be offering heat come our bodies, and also would actually heat the body, which i will not ~ make any type of sense. Absolutely endothermic process, you right.

I think the i is trying come say evaporation that water (an endothermic water) takes warmth from the body. So warmth transfers native the body to the water, cooling the body down.
