When finding the entropy of fusion of water, why do you take the entropy of fusion of the liquid state minus the entropy of fusion of the solid state, and not the other way around? Shouldn't it be final - initial state?
The entropy of a liquid is always going to be more than a solid because there is more random movement of particles, so to find the entropy of fusion (going from solid to liquid), you would need to subtract the entropy of solid from the entropy of liquid.
