Gas v Liquids

Why do gases have a higher entropy than liquids?

Gases have a higher entropy than liquids because they have a higher number of microstates. They occupy a greater volume than liquids and can move at greater speeds. As a result, they can occupy different positions and arrangements.

for the reasons above liquids also have higher entropy than solids so entropy increases from the solid state to liquid state to gaseous state.

S(gas) >> S(liquids) > S(solids)

Gas has a higher entropy than liquid because the molecules can move more freely and therefore occupy many more states.
