during a spontaneous chemical reaction, it is found that the delta Ssys is less than 0 what does this mean for delta Ssurr, and delta S sys (how does it affect magnitude and what not ?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Since we know that 

ΔSsys + ΔSsurr = ΔSuniverse

And for any reaction to be spontaneous we k...
