Expert Answer:

Q value of nuclear reaction can be calculated from Einstein's mass energy equivalence relation, E = Δ m c2. It may be positive or negative.Nuclear reaction in which the Q value is positive is called a exorgic reaction. A nuclear reaction in which Q value is negative is an endoergic reaction.
