Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Entropy is also related to temperature higher temperature means more "randomness/ disordered state"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Also entropy increases as you go from solid<liquid<gas b/c particles are less ordered.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am confused now as to whether it would be B or C.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The difference between b and C is your temperature

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If your temperature goes up you would expect a higher entropy Why? Because TdeltaS would get bigger in your Gibbs free energy equation. Also as temperature increases your average kinetic energy of particles does as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Photon336 B would be correct, not C?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A cup of water at 50 degrees has the least order and compactness as its molecules are in constant motion colliding each other with very high kinetic energy and hence due to its highest randomness among all, it has the largest entropy among others.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is B, B has the least amount of order out of all the options and therefore has the highest entropy
