# What is a process that absorbs heat?

The melting of ice

#### Explanation:

Any process that requires heat for e.g. a phase change will absorb heat (i.e. be endothermic).

E.g.

$S o l i d \to L i q u i d \to G a s$
If you move from any phase on the left to one on the right, it will be endothermic (i.e. absorb heat)
