Entropy and Gibbs free energy


... and think that the D H in it has nothing to do with entropy.   Prof: The whole Gibbs rela-tionship or function is about entropy change. Student: You’re wrong. Just that last term, TΔS, is entropy change. There’s always a conflict ...

A Student’s Approach to the Second Law and Entropy


... something happens than before (at a constant temperature).  Maybe entropy seems confusing and abstract when the first entropy equation is thrown at you in your text, about a change in entropy in a reversible process: ΔS = q rev / T.  ...

Disorder — A Cracked Crutch For Supporting Entropy Discussions


... chaos", but this quote is from an internationally distinguished chemist and author. 7 , 8 Entropy is not disorder.  Entropy is not a measure of disorder or chaos.  Entropy is not a driving force.  Energy's diffusion, dissipation, or ...

Entropy and Constraint of Motion


... of Chemical Education in May 2004, vol. 81, pp. 639-640. Entropy and Constraint of Motion I would like to make several observations supplementing and supporting the article by Frank Lambert on entropy as energy dissipation, since this is ...

The Second Law of Thermodynamics (6)


... Entropy change doesn't measure "disorder"! (What are the dimensions of "disorder"? Malarkeys per minute or some such nonsense? The scientific dimensions of entropy change are joules/Kelvin.) Entropy change in chemistry measures the ...
