A simple, non-mathematical introduction to entropy. Using data book values for entropy to calculate the entropy change during a reaction. Looks at the various types of entropy change during a reaction: the entropy changes of the system, of the surroundings and the total entropy change, and how they are related. How to use total entropy change to predict the feasibility of a reaction. Introducing Gibbs free energy, and how you can use it to predict the feasibility of reactions. **The relationship between Gibbs free energy and equilibrium constants. . .**A very brief introduction to the equation relating ΔG and equilibrium constants.
