Learning Objectives On completion of this activity you should be able to: - relate entropy to the temperature and state of a substance - calculate entropy changes for the system and the surroundings - calculate Gibbs free energy  - use entropy and Gibbs free energy changes to predict whether a process will be spontaneous - descrive the limitations of using changes in entropy or Gibbs free energy for predicting whether a reaction will occur - appreciate the connection between entropy and the distribution of energy between quantised energy levels in the system

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

This collection of Open Educational Resources (OERs) have been designed for first year undergraduates and revisits ideas from pre-university. It also begins to show how key concepts are applied early on in an undergraduate university course in chemistry. The OERs were created in Articulate and are made available as an interactive learning object for your virtual learning environment. These resources were developed by Declan Fleming, RSC School Teacher Fellow 2010-2011 at the University of Bath, produced as part of the National HE STEM Programme
