Unformatted text preview: phase change + contribution from each phase(s, l, g) What about S(T = 0)? The Third Law of Thermodynamics S(0) = 0 for perfect crystalline materials. S(0) is not zero for everything. Tables of absolute entropies for materials Use tables to calculate S for chemical reactions...
