Molar Entropy

Postby Alexandria Ilagan 2A » Sat Jan 26, 2019 9:24 pm

How does one know when a substance has a high molar entropy?

Generally, more complex molecules have higher molar entropy. Also, molar entropy is proportional to the heat required to raise a substance to a certain temperature.
--> Entropy = heat required/final temperature

The molar entropy would also increase as a substance goes from solid to liquid to gas.

Molar entropy is the amount of disorder in a system. You can imagine gas particles have more disorder than solid particles because of the distance between them so as stated in a previous response entropy would increase as a substance transitions from solid to liquid to gas.
