FClO_{3} is a tetrahedral molecule with chlorine (Cl) at the center. When FClO _{3} crystallizes in the solid state, there is no preference for one orientation over another. In other words, the unique F atom ends up randomly distributed among the tetrahedral sites, as shown below.

Calculate the expected residual molar entropy S for FClO _{3} at 0 K. Show all work and circle your final answer.

A. 2.47x10^{-23} J/mol•K

B. 14.89 J/mol•K

C. 1.91x10^{-23} J/mol•K

D. 11.52 J/mol•K

E. 0 J/mol•K
