Description : What is meant by entropy driven reaction? How can the reaction with positive change of enthalpy and entropy be made entropy driven?

Last Answer : Ans.The free energy change of a reaction is given by ΔG = ΔH - TΔS For a reaction to be spontaneous, ΔG should be -ve. If both ΔH and ΔS are positive ΔG can be -ve if TΔS>ΔH in magnitude. Thus, entropy ... is low, TΔS should be greater than ΔH (ii) If ΔS is small, T should be so large that TΔS>ΔH.
