Solid borax dissolves in water according to the equation:
Na2B4O7 10H2O(s) 2Na+ (aq) + B4O5(OH)42–(aq) + 8H2O(l)
The sign of Ssys will be

A. positive
B. negative

because there are

A. more
B. less
moles of products generated.
i've tried solving this problem and i think its negative and more. im i right?
