Consider the following reaction.
2 CO (g) + O2 (g) −→ 2 CO2 (g)
What is most likely true about the entropy change for this reaction?

Why would the delta s of the rxn be less than zero?

thanks.

    Why these answers are so? 1- For this reaction 2H2 + O2 = 2H2O a- dela H=delta Hf b-delta Hc= delta Hf c- delta H= delta Hc d- delta S= delta H and the answer is b , but how and why? 2- For this reaction 2S + 3O2 = 2SO3 + 792 kJ
