Problem 16

Ssurr is sometimes called the energy disorder term. Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

12.1­12.2 Spontaneous reactions simply need to be started with some added energy but then continue to react with no outside help until a reactant runs out. Such reactions may occur at any speed and may be exothermic or endothermic. While most spontaneous reactions are exothermic, certain endothermic reactions result in products which allow their particles to move more freely than in their reactant form, and therefore continue reacting to products naturally (spontaneous). This increased movement relates to entropy, which is how evenly distributed energy is in a system. According to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy in a closed system always increases, meaning energy becomes more diffused, through any s
