If a reaction experiences a large decrease in entropy and absorbs a large amount of heat, the reaction will be spontaneous. True False <--- my answer

    Decrease in entropy means that it's becoming more ordered. Let's see how this affects our reaction. delta G = delta H -Tdela S If entropy change is negative then -(-t delta S will be positive.

    If a reaction absorbs heat that means that it's Delta H is positive.

    Putting this all together we have Delta H positive T delta S positive Then this means delta G is positive So yes you're right it's not spontaneous.
