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

1. Phase: The gas phase has the highest entropy, followed by the liquid, and then the solid phase with the lowest entropy.

Gas > Liquid > Solid


2. Complexity: More elements in the compound leads to higher entropy.

Ex. NO3(g) [4 elements] has higher entropy than NO2(g) [3 elements].
