Unformatted text preview: ) because of lower #moles of gaseous products than the reactants (decrease in #moles of gas species). Since ∆Srxn is — and ∆Hrxn is —, therefore it is SPONTANEOUS at LOW TEMPERATURE (d) The ∆Srxn is expected to be positive (+) because of formation of gaseous products, and the reactant is a solid (gases are more entropic than solids). Since ∆Srxn is + and ∆Hrxn is +, therefore it is SPONTANEOUS at HIGH TEMPERATURE...
