Second and Third Laws of Thermodynamics

#### Q. Consider the reaction 2C2H6(g) + 7O2(g) → 4CO2(g) + 6H2O(g) for which ΔH° = 2.855x10^3 kJ and ΔS° = 92.70 J/K at 298.15 K. (1) Calculate the entropy change of the UNIVERSE when 1.891 moles of C2H6(g) react under standard conditions at 298.15 K. (2) Is this reaction reactant or product favored under standard conditions? (3) If the reaction is product favored, is it enthalpy favored, entropy favored, or favored by both enthalpy and entropy? If the reaction is reactant favored, choose 'reactant favored'.

Second and Third Laws of Thermodynamics

#### Q. Water gas, a mixture of H2 and CO2, is a fuel made by reacting steam with red-hot coke (a by product of coal distillation): H2O(g) + C(s) ⇋ CO(g) + H2(g) Using a table of thermodynamic data, estimate the temperature at which the reaction begins to favor the formation of products.
