Midterm

Postby Lily Benitez 2G » Fri Mar 15, 2019 7:43 pm

Nanotechnologists have found ways to create and manipulate structures containing only a few molecules. However, orienting the molecules in specific ways to assemble such structures can be difficult. Calculate the entropy of a solid nano structure made of 64 molecules in which the molecules (i) are all aligned in the same direction; (ii) lie in any one of four orientations with the same energy.

How do we find Kb for part two?

Kb is boltzmann's constant, which is given in the equation sheet.
for part two, we calculate :
w = orientations ^ # of molecules.
delta S = Kb x w
delta S = (1.38x 10^-23) (4^64)

Kb is given already, it should be on the constant sheet

Thank You! Just saw it
