    1) One mole of an ideal gas is changed from 273.15K and 2 atm to 233.15K and 0.4 atm. Calculate delta S for this change in state.

    2) Arrange the following chemicals in order of increasing entropy at STP.
    n - pentane (g)
    methanol ( l)

    1. dS = Cpln(T2/T1) - Rln(P2/P1)

    We don't know what Cp is, it depends on the type of ideal gas. T2 ...
