Answer

endothermic

Work Step by Step

We know that processes that involve going from gas to liquid and from liquid to solid release energy since the particles have less energy in solid state than in the liquid or gas state. Going the reverse direction involves the particles gaining energy, making it endothermic. Thus, the given process is endothermic, for evaporation involves going from liquid to gas.
