Problem 43E

Water put into the freezer compartment of your refrigerator goes to a state of less molecular disorder when it freezes. Is this an exception to the entropy principle? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 43E Step 1 : We know that the entropy of water increases as it melts and decreases as it freezes Let us understand how freezing happens When a water is put into the fridge the heat from the water is spread around the freezer This increases the entropy of the fridge But since the water is losing heat , the entropy of water decreases However the entropy is more when heat is released , this implies the entropy gained by fridge is higher Thus the total entropy of the system increases

Step 2 of 2
