Using the data sheet (see attachment) calculate delta S values for the following reactions. In each case explain the sign of delta S.

N2H4(g) + H2(g) --> 2NH3(g)
2Al(s) + 3Cl2(g) --> 2AlCl3(g)
Mg[OH]2(s) + 2Hcl(g) --> MgCl2(s) + 2H20(l)
2CH4(g) --> C2H6 + H2(g)

1. dH = entropy of products - entropy of reactants

dH = [2x 192.5] - [238.5 + 130.58] = 15.92 J/molK

There is a small increase in entropy as the gases become somewhat smaller and hence more ...
