What is the change in entropy for the system (positive, negative, or zero)?

Concentrated bleach is added to water

Step 1

Entropy is a measure of degree of disorderness of the system. It increases with an increase in randomness of the system and decreases with a decrease in randomness of the system.


Entropy of a system depends upon volume of the system. The increase in volume of a system increases the disorderness in the system which results in the increase in entropy of the system.

Step 2

The given system involves the addition of concentrated bleach to water which results in the increase in volume of the system. An increase in volume of a sy...
