- For same heat transfer, will the entropy change of a solid or a liquid be more
A hypothetical question. Heat Q is transferred from water to a metallic solid. Both have same heat capacities and the same initial temperature. Now since molecules in a liquid are more randomly oriented than a solid, will the entropy decrease of the liquid be more than the entropy increase of the solid? I know this cannot be true but do not know how to explain it. Is it related to phase space and probabilities of finding particles in a region of space? If so how?
