Affect of temperature on entropy?

Postby Riya Sood 4G » Sun Feb 02, 2020 8:21 am

Does increasing the temperature, increase or decrease the entropy of a system? Since increasing the temperature should put the molecules in an excited state to move around more freely

Increasing the temperature increases the entropy of a system.

Yes, and the amount of states the system can take increases.

Increasing the temperature would lead to an increase in entropy of the system

Yes, as temperature increases, entropy increases due to the excited nature of the molecules within a system.

Increasing the temperature would increase the entropy because if you are increasing the temperature, there would be more states in the system. More states in a system means there is more entropy for the system.
