### Pizza Rolls 5H

Why does Lead have a higher molar entropy than Carbon?

Pb lead which has 82 electrons has a higher molar entropy than C carbon which has 6 electrons because overall lead has more particles (82 protons / 82 electrons and some number of neutrons) than carbon which has only 6 protons / 6 electrons and some lower number of neutrons. Because lead has more particles, there are more states it can be in which means that it has a higher molar entropy where more states = more disorder.
