Entropy vs. Enthalpy

Postby Rakhi Ratanjee 1D » Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:07 am

What is the direct relationship between entropy and enthalpy. Are they directly proportional?

Entropy is calculated by dividing the heat lost/gained in a reversible reaction divided by the temperature of the system. If this reaction occurs at constant pressure then you can substitute q for delta H, or enthalpy change.

Change in enthalpy, delta H, is equal to heat loss/gained under constant pressure. If there's constant pressure than in the equation delta S=q/T, q can be replaced by delta H. Under these condition, change in entropy would be directly proportional with change in entropy.
