In chemistry, the standard molar entropy is the entropy content of one mole of substance, under conditions of standard temperature and pressure. By comparing the entropies S and enthalpies H of products and reactants in a chemical reaction, we can determine whether the reaction will go forward or backwards. If the Gibbs free energy (G = H - TS) is negative, the forward reaction will take place. The standard molar entropy is usually given the symbol S0, and the units J/(mol·K) (joules per mole-kelvin). Chemistry (in Greek: χημεία) is the science of matter that deals with the composition, structure, and properties of substances and with the transformations that they undergo. ...

Entropy (1585 words)
Entropy is related to the energy distribution of energy states of a collection of molecules, and this aspect is usually discussed in statistical mechanics.
Entropy is also related to probability, as a measure of randomness or disorder, and entropy is proportional to the logarithm of the probability.
Since the entropies of most substances have been measured and tabulated in handbooks and data banks, standard entropies of reactions can be evaluated in a similar manner as enthalpies of reactions.
Chapter 17 Review (991 words)
The standard molar entropy is simply the entropy of 1 mol of a pure substance at 1 atm pressure and standard temperature (usually 25°C).
Both entropy and enthalpy considerations are combined in the term free energy change (abbreviated ΔG), which is the ultimate criterion for determining the spontaneity of a reaction.
The standard free energy of formation of a substance measures its thermodynamic stability with respect to its constituent elements.
