Unformatted text preview: Chem 116 Lecture 16 (JL) 10‐28‐08 Higher entropy = more disorder. Lower entropy = more order. Reaction will take place in the phase where the highest entropy (therefore most disordered) is. Q initially = [HI]2 = 0 = 0 (0.006)2 [H2][I2] Generally speaking it’s a good idea to calculate initial Q and compare to K. If Qinitial < K, then products ↑ and reactants ↓. If Qinitial > k, then opposite direction. ...
