Which of the following conclusions is correct for the change in entropy for this reaction? You must find all of the correct answers.
Ag(l) --> Ag(s) (1atm, 25°C)
1. ΔSsys < 0
2. ΔSuniv > 0
3. The sign of ΔSsys cannot be determined.
4. ΔSsys > 0
5. The sign of ΔSuniv cannot be determined.
7. ΔSuniv < 0
liquid --> solid = ΔS< 0.
The Attempt at a Solution
The reaction is more orderly because it goes from a liquid to a solid. I am pretty positive that number 1 is, therefore, correct. However, I am unsure of what happens to ΔSuniverse. Any suggestions/hints/information are much appreciated!
