###### Problem Details

For which reaction, carried out at standard conditions, would both the enthalpy and entropy changes drive the reaction in the same direction?

a) 2 H(g) + O(g) → 2 H2O (l)         ΔH = - 571.1 kJ

b) 2 Na (s) + Cl(g) → 2 NaCl (s)      ΔH = - 822.0 kJ

c) N(g) + 2 O(g) → 2 NO(g)        ΔH = + 67.7 kJ

d) 2 NH(g) → N(g) + 3 H(g)        ΔH = + 92.4 kJ
