Question

# For which of the following processes, $$\Delta S$$ is negative?

A
N2(g,273K)N2(g,300K)
B
N2(g,1atm)N2(g,5atm)
C
C(diamond)C(graphite)
D
H2(g)2H(g)

Solution

## The correct option is B $${N}_{2}(g,1atm)\rightarrow {N}_{2}(g,5atm)$$(A)When we increase the temperature of a gas then randomness is increased due to kinetic energy gained by molecules.So, $$\Delta$$$$S>0$$(B)When pressure increases then molecules of gas will come closer and intermolecular distance decreases so entropy will also decrease.and $$\Delta$$$$S<0$$(C)When Diamond is converted into graphite when it is heated to $$1500^oC$$ and entropy is increased so $$\Delta$$$$S>0$$(D)$$H_2$$ molecule is converted into atoms, So entropy will increase.So $$\Delta$$$$S>0$$Chemistry
