🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hoffman's class at DREXEL.
Recall that entropy is the degree of chaos or disorder of a system. For a given process, entropy (ΔS) will either increase or decrease.
The reaction given:
2 CO(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2 CO2(g) ΔH˚rxn = – 566.0 kJ
Without doing any calculations, determine the sign of ΔSsys and ΔSsurr for each of the chemical reactions below.
2 CO(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2 CO2(g), ΔH˚rxn = –566.0 kJ
