### Entropy and Structure

How does entropy give a clue about how the substance is structured as a solid? Can we be certain of what orientation a substance will be?

### Re: Entropy and Structure

Sure. The more complex a structure is, the more entropy it will have. With entropy we can have an idea of what kind of orientation a substance can be.
