    ok, I know the entropy will be negative because you are going from a gas to a liquid, so decreasing entropy. but what about the enthalpy ?

    Because water vapour condenses, it gives away heat, so Process is exothermic. That is way delta H is negative. Because delta S = delta H/ T, it is also negative
