Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Robert on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 2:58pm.

Explain why each of the following is incorrect:

(a) Entropy increases in all spontaneous reactions.

Wouldn't (a) be actually correct? Because when there's a spontaneous reaction, you have less stable molecules and more disorder. It will be lower in some reactions than in others, but doesn't it always increase when a reaction favors spontaneity?
