Does entropy increase as the molecule size gets bigger?

Entropy increases with heavier atoms as heavier atoms have more vibrational energy than lighter atoms. Additionally, entropy increases with molecular complexity. Meaning when there are more atoms attached to the central atom of a certain compound, the entropy of that particular compound increases. Also, entropy increases when there is a net production of gas moles.

Hope that helped!
