2 Spontaneous reactions 1 st law of thermodynamics (conservation of energy) endo or exothermic H(rxn) = f( H f °’s) H(rxn) = f(BE’s) complete rxn ? equilibrium ? spontaneous ?

3 strongly exothermic rxns are generally spontaneous at RT P 4 (s) + 5 O 2 (g) P 4 O 10 (s) H -3000 kJ ! not all exothermic rxns are spontaneous at RT N 2 (g) + 3 H 2 (g) 2 NH 3 (g) H = -85 kJ diamond graphite H = -1.9 kJ due to very slow kinetics - how?

4 endothermic rxns can be spontaneous - melting of ice at RT H = +6 kJ/mol - sublimation of CO 2 (s) (dry ice) at RT H = +25 kJ/mol - NH 4 NO 3 (s) + H 2 O NH 4 + (aq) + NO 3 - (aq) H = +26 kJ/mol - boiling of water at 100°C, 1 atm H = +44 kJ/mol

5 spontaneity = irreversibility reactants products forw. rev. if the forward rxn is spontaneous and complete, then the reverse rxn cannot be (under the same conditions) 2 Na(s) + H 2 O 2 NaOH(aq) + H 2 (g) mixing vs. unmixing of aqueous solutions spontaneity depends on entropy change ( S)

6 Entropy and disorder expansion of a gas into a vacuum spontaneous + irreversible ideal gas at constant T, U = 0, q = 0, w = 0 spontaneous increase in disorder of system (gas molecules dispersed over larger volume )

7 spontaneous heat transfer from hot to cold T object and T surr. U object + U surr. = 0 < 0 > 0 spontaneous dispersion of energy among object and surroundings increased disorder T

8 spontaneous disorder is due to higher statistical probability 2 “ordered” states (configurations) 6 “disordered” states a disordered state is 3 times more probable
