🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Myers' class at NAU.
We’re being asked to select the decreasing order of entropy for a given compound in the solid, liquid, and gas phase.
Recall that entropy is the degree of chaos or disorder of a system and that it depends on the following:
For a given compound, list the decreasing order of entropy for a solid, liquid, and gas.
a. solid > gas > liquid
b. liquid > solid > gas
c. gas > liquid > solid
d. gas > solid > liquid
e. solid > liquid > gas
