How can we Predict Entropy Changes?
This post will follow from the last post about entropy and cover predicting entropy changes for Prelim Chemistry.
Topic: Entropy and Gibbs Free Energy
- Predict entropy changes from balanced chemical reactions to classify as increasing or decreasing entropy
Predicting Entropy with the Change in Entropy
The change in entropy describes whether the system is heading towards greater disorder or less disorder, if it is positive, it heads towards more disorder but if it is negative, it heads towards less disorder. This video was in the last post but it offers a good explanation about entropy and calculating change in entropy.
This video goes through some examples.
