4/1/2009 2 Entropy (S) is a measure of the randomness or disorder of a system. order S disorder S Δ S = S f - S i If the change from initial to final results in an increase in randomness S f > S i Δ S > 0 For any substance, the solid state is more ordered than the liquid state and the liquid state is more ordered than gas state S solid < S liquid << S gas H 2 O ( s ) H 2 O ( l ) Δ S > 0 18.3 W = 1 W = 4 W = number of microstates S = k ln W Δ S = S f - S i Entropy W = 6 Δ S = k ln W f W i W f > W i then Δ S > 0 W f < W i then Δ S < 0 18.3 Processes that lead to an increase in entropy ( Δ S > 0) 18.2 How does the entropy of a system change for each of the following processes? (a) Condensing water vapor Randomness decreases Entropy decreases ( Δ S < 0) (b) Forming sucrose crystals from a supersaturated solution Randomness decreases Entropy decreases Δ S <0
