4H.9

Postby Kyle Rex 1K » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:34 pm

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.

The entropy of the container with diatoms would be higher because you have to worry about the orientation when looking at microstates. Since they both have 1 mol of atoms, then the container with diatoms has higher entropy.
