ii) Are S and H for the system positive or negative? Explain why
iii) Explain what the relative magnitude of H/T to S is (i.e. are the terms larger, smaller or equal?) at 260K and 340K.
iv) 10g of ethanol at 290K are mixed with 10g of ethanol at 310K in an insulated beaker. Show that heat transfer from the warmer ethanol is a spontaneous process
