Textbook Problem

The third law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of a perfect crystal at 0 K is zero. In Appendix 4, F(aq), OH(aq), and S2−(aq) all have negative standard entropy values. How can S° values be less than zero?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: An explanation corresponding to some of the ionic species having the S° values less than zero is to be stated.

Concept introduction: Entropy is defined as the degree of randomness in a given system. According to the third law of thermodynamics, the entropy of a perfect crystal is zero at 0K .

Explanation

Explanation

According to the third law of thermodynamics, the entropy of a perfect crystal is zero at 0K . It is applicable to perfectly crystalline solids. This does not hold true for the aqueous species.

The given substances, F , OH
