Entropy

posted by .

Tungsten has been used to make light bulb filaments since 1908. The melting point of tungsten is 3422C and the heat of fusion is 35 kJ/mole. Calculate the entropy change associated with the melting of one mole of tungsten.

  • Entropy -

    Divide the heat of fusion by the Kelvin temperature of the melting point. That will be the entropy change. Make sure you convert 3422 C to Kelvin.

    Thank you. I was missing the units the whole time.

    S = H/T

    Convert kj to Joules; convert C to K.

  • Entropy -

    Entropy is sometimes stated in kJ/mole K, but you are right, kcal/mole K is more common
