We need to determine the entropy of NH

(g) at 100
o
C.
We can find the standard entropy
of NH
3
(g) at 298 K from Table 2.6 in the textbook  all we have to calculate is the
amount of entropy that arises from increasing the temperature of this gas by an additional

is the entropy change of raising the temperature.
In order to calculate the second entropy term we must start from the general equation for
entropy:

S

As this is a constant pressure heating process we can start with the general equation for
constant pressure heat capacity to find the reversible heat:

Rearranging into a form to isolate for enthalpy (which is the reversible heat):

However, in this case we are told that the heat capacity is temperature dependent
according to:

Therefore we must substitute this equation into the equation for reversible heat:

Now this expression for reversible heat can be substituted back into the equation for
