If a bowl of salt water is left in the sun long enough for the water to evaporate a layer of salt crystals will be left in the bottom of the bowl. Salt crystals are more ordered than dissolved ions.

a. Is this an increase or decrease in entropy? Support your answer.

b. How does this increase or decrease relate to the second law of thermodynamics?
