Spontaneity Spontaneous does not mean fast. Non-spontaneous does not mean impossible. If a process is spontaneous, the reverse process is non-spontaneous. http://mooni.fccj.org/~ethall/2046/ch20/spontaneous/spontan.htm 2
Spontaneity and Disorder In spontaneous processes, systems go towards disorder. 3

Entropy (S) Proportional to disorder in the system. Entropy (S) is a state function. ΔS = (q rev )/T Entropy increases in a spontaneous process. To predict increase/decrease in entropy figure out increase/decrease in disorder. Entropy changes in phase changes. ΔS 0 surr = -ΔH 0 sys T ΔS 0 = Σν p S 0 p - Σν r S 0 r Second law of thermodynamics: All spontaneous processes produce an increase in the entropy of the universe. ΔS univ = ΔS sys + ΔS surr > 0 Third law of thermodynamics: Entropy of a pure perfect crystal at 0 K is zero. 4
Spontaneity: Criteria Increase in entropy: 1. Pure liquids or liquid solutions are formed from solids.

Unformatted text preview: 2. Gases are formed from either solids or liquids. 3. Number of gas molecules increased as a result of a chemical reaction. 4. Temperature of a substance increases.
