Comparing complex molecules

Postby Brandon Mo 4K » Thu Feb 14, 2019 11:03 pm

How do we compare the standard entropies between complex molecules?

What are the general rules used?

How large the molecule is. An easy way to do this is by calculating the molar mass. In what state the molecule is in (gaseous has the most entropy). How many unique atoms are within the molecule to allow for more states.

you should look at the states then the size of the molecules. g > l > s and heavier/more atoms > lighter/less atoms
