How is it possible for a chemical rxn to be highly spontaneous and have a negative entropy value? Isn't this inconsistent with the 2nd law of thermodynamics?

  • chemistry - ,

    dG = dH - TdS
    If dS is -, then the term TdS is + and dG can be negative ONLY if dH is negative enough to off set the TdS term.
