a. All pure substances have a positive entropy at room temperature.
b. The dissolution of an ionic salt in water usually leads to an increase in entropy of the system (salt + water).
c. So(one mole O3(g)) > So(one mole O2(g)) at 25oC.
d. The entropy of ice at 0oC is lower than that of water at 0oC.
e. When a metallic crystal is heated, its entropy increases due to increasing atomic vibrations.
