ENTROPY

noun

COLLOCATIONS FROM CORPUS

■ NOUN

change

So how do we calculate the entropy change of the surroundings?

Thus during a chemical reaction there is always an entropy change .

The Gibbs free energy change therefore takes into account the enthalpy change of a reaction system and its entropy change.

EXAMPLES FROM CORPUS

But how does entropy help us to predict whether a change will take place or not?

During this spontaneous process, the entropy of the system therefore increases.

Energy is thus dispersed and so we might expect an increase in entropy and not a decrease.

Eventually the limit is reached where no further packing would be possible and where the configurational entropy therefore vanishes.

So how do we calculate the entropy change of the surroundings?

The entropy of gases is much higher than the entropy of solids.

They saw disorder steadily growing, like a baby, and called this entropy .

They therefore have a higher entropy after mixing.
