For an endothermic process, q will have a (positive/negative) sign.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Whether q will have positive or negative sign for an endothermic process.

Concept Introduction:

In thermodynamic quantities, there are two parts; one is number which gives the magnitude of the change and another is a sign which indicates the direction of the flow.

The process which results the evolution of heat or heat is flow out of the system is known as exothermic whereas the process which absorbs energy from the surrounding is known as endothermic process.

Explanation

If quantity of energy flows into the system via heat (absorbed; endothermic), then q is positive (+x) whereas quantity of energy flows out of the system via heat (released; exothermic), then q is negative (-x)...
