Chapter 17 Lecture 2 Thermodynamics (completed) Third Law: The entropy of a perfect crystal at 0 K is zero Second Law: Entropy for the universe is always increasing. S universe = S system + S surroundings > 0 Means: In the process of injecting order into a system, there is a bigger mess somewhere else. Gibbs Free Energy: Enthalpy + Entropy ΔG = ΔH ─ TΔS This is the complete thermodynamic picture, but does not tell you how fast the reaction will occur. ∆G is about the propensity for a reaction to occur: When chemicals mix …… ∆G < 0 reaction will be spontaneous ∆G>0 reaction will be non-spontaneous
