If I were to dissolve a salt in water by stirring it (let's say NaCl), will I be affecting the entropy of the water that surrounds it
Well since this is an endothermic process, I believe some heat would be taken away from the water surrounding the salt. But I'm not sure if this value is even important since I would assume the majority of the change of entropy of the dissolution would be calculating the change in positional entropy, which shouldn't affect the water.
If you're adding particles wouldn't that increase the entropy?
Wait new thought, if you're taking a solid and adding it to water, then the entropy would increase, because you now you have an aqueous solution.
