Solution: Indicate whether each statement is true or false.If the entropy of the system increases during a reversible process, the entropy change of the surroundings must decrease by the same amount.

Problem

Indicate whether each statement is true or false.

If the entropy of the system increases during a reversible process, the entropy change of the surroundings must decrease by the same amount.

Solution

We have to determine if the entropy if the surroundings decreases by the same amount as the increase in entropy of a system for a reversible process.


Entropy is the degree of disorder of a system.

A reversible process or change is the one which would return the system and surroundings to their initial states when it is undone or reversed.
