### 9.35 Explained

Posted:

**Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:58 pm**I'm super confused about how the answer is figured out in this question.

Container A is filled with 1.0 mol of the atoms of an ideal monatomic gas. Container B has 1.0 mol of atoms bound together as diatomic molecules that are not vibrationally active. Container C has 1.0 mol of atoms bound together as diatomic molecules that are vibrationally active. The containers all start at Ti and the temperature increases to Tf. Rank the containers in order of increasing change in entropy. Explain your reasoning.

Thanks!
