what is entropy? This is a measure of disorder, or the dispersal of energy.
How can entropy increase or decrease? The greater the dispersal of energy, the higher the entropy, therefore the higher the dispersal, the higher the entropy.
what is a good example of entropy? A good example is ice melting. Ice has more order and therefore low entropy. When it melts, it has a higher disorder and higher entropy.
what are some characteristics of entropy? Entropy increases as you go from solid to liquid and eventually gas. Gas has the most entropy, compared to liquid or solid.
How does entropy behave as it goes from solid to liquid in a solvent? Entropy increases if the solid or liquid is dissolved in a solvent
How does entropy behave as particles increase? Entropy increases as the number of particles increase.
How does entropy behave as temperature increase? As temperature increases, entropy increases.
How does entropy behave as molecular mass increase? As the mass of a molecule increases, entropy increases.
How does entropy behave with weakening bonds? The weaker the bond on a compound the higher the entropy.
What happens to entropy with increasing molecular complexity? Entropy increases as the complexity with the molecule
what does the third law of thermodynamic states? The third Law of Thermodynamics states that any substance at a temperature of absolute zero has an entropy of zero.
What favors an increase in entropy? a spontaneous reaction
What favors a decrease in entropy? a non-spontaneous reaction
