At $27^\circ C$ the enthalpy change for the transition of liquid water to steam is 30 kJ/mol. What would be the entropy change for the process?


(a) 0.1 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$
(b) 100 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$
(c) 10 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$
(d) 1.0 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$

Answer: 100 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$
Liquid water $\rightarrow $ steam
$\Delta G^{\circ} = \Delta H^\circ - T \Delta S^\circ = 30 \times 10^3 - T \Delta S$
$\therefore \Delta S = \frac{30\times 10^3}{300}$ = 100 $Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}$
