REFLECT AND APPLY Would you expect an increase or a decrease of entropy to accompany the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine to the constituent parts (glycerol, two fatty acids, phosphoric acid, and choline)? Why?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The change in entropy in order to accompany the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine to its constituent parts is to be discussed.

Concept introduction:

Entropy refers to the randomness or disorder of the molecules, and depends on the number of various arrangements of a system.

Phosphatidylcholine is considered a chemical found in eggs, soybeans, mustard, sunflower, and some other foods.

Explanation of Solution

The entropy is a variable of state of the system; hence, the change in the entropy of a system is calculated from the initial and final states of the system...
