We’re being asked to determine the signs of S and H for the following process:
A diatomic molecule dissociates into atoms
Entropy(S) and enthalpy (H) are thermodynamic properties.
First, let’s determine the sign of H for the dissociation of diatomic molecules into atoms.
For each of the following processes, indicate whether the signs of S and H are expected to be positive, negative, or about zero.
A diatomic molecule dissociates into atoms.
