### What is Kb in Entropy? Entropy Clarification?

Posted:

**Fri Jan 20, 2017 3:40 pm**In Chem14A, Ka and Kb dealt with acid and base equilibrium; however, I don't understand how this relates to entropy and how we're supposed to derive this value for calculations?

Also, I don't fully understand the concept of entropy. I understand that it is randomness within a system, but in lecture it was mentioned that increasing entropy is favorable because it leads to equilibrium. Why is that so?
