    Ask yourself: what does a positive enthalpy change tell you about a reaction?

    Yes! positive enthalpy change , the reaction is endothermic, the final state or products have more energy than the reactants. When you do the delta, or difference between final minus the initial state of the reaction you get a positive value.
