Joe’s Review Session

Postby Kellina Tran 2I » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:22 pm

For anyone who went to Joe’s review session today, can someone give me a run-through on the steps to solve the problem he gave us with calculating the total deltaS for vaporization of C2H5OH, including the numbers you got for each step? I keep getting the wrong answer and I’m not sure why. I believe the answer was around 130 J.K^-1.mol^-1.

yes, here is the problem!

Ethanol: what is the entropy of vaporization of 1 mol of ethanol at 285K?
1) deltaS=n*C(l)*ln(351.5/285)= 23.28J/K
2) deltaS=(43500J/mol) / 351.5= 123.755J/K
3) deltaS=n*C(g)*ln(285/351.5)= -16.42J/K
