Kotz and Triechel, Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity Chapter 18: Sections 4-5.
- 18.4 Entropy increases with temperature and with changes of state involving the input of heat (from solid to liquid, from liquid to gas). The more ways a molecule can change position or move, the greater the number of microstates it can have and the higher its entropy level.
- 18.5 Entropy, like enthalpy and potential energy, is a state value: we measure the difference between two states, but do not measure the absolute zero value of entropy except to establish a baseline under specific conditions. Reactions will be
- spontaneous if they are both exothermic and entropy increases
- spontaneous if they are exothermic and the decrease in entropy is small enough
- spontaneous if they are endothermic and the increase in entropy is big enough
- never spontaneous if they are endothermic and entropy decreases
