Problem: If energy can flow in and out of the system to maintain a constant temperature during the process, what can you say about the entropy change of the surroundings as a result of this process?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to determine the entropy change of the surroundings as a result of the given process.

A dense three-by-three-by-three cube of spheres converts to nine free floating and widely-spaced spheres.


Recall that entropy is the degree of chaos or disorder of a system and that it depends on the following:
