It says containers B and C have 1 mole of atoms bound into diatomic molecules. Does this mean that it's 1 mole of diatomics or .5 mol of diatomics bc the 1 mol of atoms would be split in half? and how would the entropies compare of 1 mol of atoms vs diatomics?
1 mol of atoms bound into diatomic molecules means there are 0.5 mol of diatomic molecules(1 mol*(1 mol molecule/2 mol atoms). This means the entropy of this will be lower than that of 1 mol of atoms because there are more single atoms and hence greater disorderliness.
