Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Decrease 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If a reaction absorbs heat that means that it's Delta H is positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Putting 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.
