Description

To succeed in this topic, you need to:

  • Be familiar with the arrangement of particles for materials in different states or phases.
  • Be familiar with how chemical reactions involve changes in the enthalpy of a system.
  • Be aware that some reactions are described as being thermodynamically feasible (or spontaneous).

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:

  • Be able to define entropy in terms of an increase in disorder.
  • Be able to describe how entropy links with the laws of thermodynamics.
  • Be able to apply Gibbs Free Energy to determine if change is feasible or not feasible for a set of given conditions.
