Entropy vs. Standard Entropy

Postby lizzygaines1D » Sun Jan 28, 2018 11:46 pm

what's the difference is in finding the entropy of vaporization vs the standard entropy of vaporization?

I believe that the standard entropy of vaporization is something like the specific heat capacity where there is a standard amount of entropy always associated with a particular reaction. Also, this might indicate that all of the reactants and products are in their standard state.

I think the difference is that when you want the standard entropy, you are forming 1 mole of the product with everything in its standard states.

Standard entropy specifically means that every reactant and product is in its purest state (i.e.: H2 gas) and that 1 mole of product is produced.

the word standard used in this sense represents that every reactants and products are in their purest forms. Only one mole is produced.
