Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Maria on Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 6:38pm.

Can someone explain in easier terms the spontaneous process, entropy, and free energy. The textbook is hard to understand. Just a simple explanation. Thanks. Appreciate it!

Free energy is the amount of energy that can be released in a chemical reaction. If free energy is positive, the reaction is very likely to be spontaneous (if the activation energy is low). Entropy is the energy that is unavailable for work.
