Question

A particular solvent with ΔS°vap = 112.9 J/( K.mol) and ΔH°vap = 38.0 kJ/mol is being considered for an experiment. In the experiment, which is to be run at 75 °C, the solvent must not boil. Based on the overall entropy change associated with the vaporization reaction, would this solvent be suitable and why or why not? The solvent would a) be suitable because ΔSuniv > 0. b) not be suitable because ΔSuniv > 0. c) be suitable because ΔSuniv < 0. d) not be suitable because ΔSuniv < 0.
