Entropy being a state function

Postby Maria Bajenov 1I » Sat Feb 10, 2018 12:23 pm

Is it only important to note whether a reaction is irreversible or reversible if the variable we are solving for is not a state function and dependent on the path? So an entropy calculation of an irreversible reaction can be found using the reversible calculation and be the same?

Yes, for any state function the answer would be the same for a reversible or irreversible path.

Yes, since entropy is a state function the two types of reactions would result in the same answer.
