In an exothermic rxn change in enthalpy is negative but change in entropy is positive (in respect to the surroudings)(increase in positional probability).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In an endothermic rxn change in enthalpy is positive but change in entropy is negative (in respect to the surroundings)(decrease in positional probability).

right???

Plz say so
