Perfect Crystals

Postby HannahNizinski_1G » Sat Jan 23, 2016 11:15 am

How do you determine that a molecule is a perfect crystal? Will that information be given to us or will we have to use Lewis diagrams?

It will be stated as "perfect" i would assume. Since S=KlnW, W would be 1 in a perfect system and S would be 0.

Return to “Third Law of Thermodynamics (For a Unique Ground State (W=1): S -> 0 as T -> 0) and Calculations Using Boltzmann Equation for Entropy”
