Problem

Which statement is correct?

a) Heating always decreases the entropy of a system.

b) The reaction that results in an increase in the number of moles of gas always decreases the entropy of a system.

c) A greater number of particles leads to a smaller number of microstates.

d) An increase in the temperature decreases all types of molecular motions.

e) The dissolving of a solute often leads to an increase in entropy.
