- Enthalpies of Chemical Change:Often called heats of reaction (DH) units kJ
Endothermic:Heat flows into the system from the surroundings and DH has a positive sign.

Exothermic:Heat flows out of the system into the surroundings and DH has a negative sign.

Are the following reactions endothermic or exothermic? Favorable or unfavorable?

C3H8(g) + 5 O2(g) 3 CO2(g) + 4 H2O(l) DH = –2219 kJ

CH3Cl(g) + HCl(g) CH4(g) + Cl2(g) DH = 98.3 kJ

Entropy Favorable or unfavorable?

- The measure of molecular disorder in a system is called the system’s entropy; this is denoted S.
- Entropy has units of J/K (Joules per Kelvin).
DS = Sfinal – Sinitial

Positive value of DS indicates increased disorder.

Negative value of DS indicates decreased disorder.

Entropy Favorable or unfavorable?

- Second Law of Thermodynamics: Reactions proceed in the direction that increases the entropy of the system plus surroundings.
- A spontaneous process is one that proceeds on its own without any continuous external influence.
- A nonspontaneous processtakes place only in the presence of a continuous external influence.

Predict whether Favorable or unfavorable?DS is likely to be positive or negative for each of the following reactions.

- a. 2 CO(g) + O2(g) 2 CO2(g)
- b. 2 NaHCO3(s) Na2CO3(s) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)
- c. C2H4(g) + Br2(g) CH2BrCH2Br(l)
- d. 2 C2H6(g) + 7 O2(g) 4 CO2(g) + 6 H2O(g)

- To decide whether a process is spontaneous, both enthalpy and entropy changes must be considered:
Spontaneous process: Decrease in enthalpy (–DH). Increase in entropy (+DS).

Nonspontaneous: Increase in enthalpy (+DH). Decrease in entropy (–DS).

Free Energy and entropy changes must be considered:

- Gibbs Free Energy Change (DG): Weighs the relative contributions of enthalpy and entropy to the overall spontaneity of a process.
DG = DH – TDS

- DG < 0 Process is spontaneous
- DG = 0 Process is at equilibrium
- DG > 0 Process is nonspontaneous

Which of the following reactions are spontaneous under standard conditions at 25°C?

a. AgNO3(aq) + NaCl(aq) AgCl(s) + NaNO3(aq) DG° = –55.7 kJ

b. 2 C(s) + 2 H2(g) C2H4(g)DG° = 68.1 kJ

c. N2(g) + 3 H2(g) 2 NH3(g) DH° = –92 kJ; DS° = –199 J/K

- Equilibrium ( standard conditions at 25°C?DG = 0):
Equilibrium is the point where DG = DH – TDS = 0

- Estimate of the temperature at which a reaction becomes spontaneous (set DG =0)
T = DH / DS

2 NH standard conditions at 25°C?3(g) N2(g) + 3 H2(g)

DH = 92.0 kJ DS = 199 J/K

Is this reaction spontaneous @ 25C? If not, at what temperature does this reaction become spontaneous?
