In which of the following physical states does a given substance have the highest entropy?

In which of the following physical states does a given substance have the highest entropy? a. solid b. gas c. liquid d. all of the above

Answers

D) the concentration of reactants and products remains constant.

Explanation:

1. Which of the following is true regarding a Dynamic Equilibrium?

A) it may occur in both open and closed systems. FALSE. It can only occur in closed systems. Otherwise, gases would leave the recipient and it would be impossible to reach the equilibrium.

B) the forward reaction is only occurring. FALSE. The forward reaction and the reverse reaction occur at the same rate.

C) the concentrations found at equilibrium are different if a system approaches equilibrium from different directions. FALSE. The equilibrium is the same regardless of the direction from which it comes.

D) the concentration of reactants and products remains constant. TRUE.

The physical state in which a substance has no definite volume is gas.
B) Gas
Reason: Because Gas has te hhighest entropy?
Lets think about entropy. Entropy greatly favors random, crazy, and disordered options for key, simplified ideas to think about. With this in mind which state has the most "crazy" or the most disorder going on? Solids are pretty fixed in place, liquids have a little more freedom, and gasses can go crazy, moving around and causing agreat deal if disorder. Imaging it this way is helpful? =)
