This is what i understand from this formula:

As the temperature goes down, the entropy goes up. Is this not the opposite (contradictory) to what entropy (disorder) is about? At a lower temperature, there should be more order (lower entropy). From what I was taught, the highest entropy would be when the temperature of a system reaches absolute zero - the third law of thermodynamics. Am I correct?

Also how does the energy of the system (in this case universe) explain this equation? A higher drop in the enthalpy - which is directly related to the energy of the system and its volume (space) - would result in more disorder? That would make sense to me. Is that correct?
