Entropy

Postby Bola_G_3H » Thu Jan 26, 2017 11:59 pm

What effect does the being reversible vs irreversible have on entropy? How would you calculate both?

Irreversible processes cause a change in entropy, whereas reversible processes have an entropy change of 0.

Kathy can you explain what you mean by that? What kind of example should we refer to understand that concept?

If entropy is always increasing, then in a non-spontaneous reaction what part of the reaction relates to the increase in entropy if we are using work to create order?

I understand that with a more massive substance, the higher the entropy. But, how can you distinguish in the level of entropy between a solid, a liquid, and a gas of the same substance?

Usually entropy increases from solid -> liquid -> gas because there's more disorder associated with a gas (molecules are free to move around and are not bounded) compared to that of a solid (molecules are in rigid structures).

Does anyone know what effect does pressure have on entropy?

A higher pressure would mean that a substance is more constricted to move around. The entropy would therefore be less when the pressure increases.
