9.37 and subtracting vaporization

Postby Emily Glaser 1F » Sat Mar 17, 2018 12:25 am

Why wouldn' you subtract the entropy of vaporization in this problem for part a?

H2(g) + 1/2O2(g) --> H2O(l)
Delta S = Sproducts - S reactants
There is a phase change. We did something like this for enthalpy, so why not for entropy.

The reactants are gases and the product is a liquid, hence, the entropy of the system increased
