What happens to entropy if temperature increases?

According to the laws of thermodynamics, when temperature increases, entropy typically increases. The level of disorder (entropy) in a given system is usually proportional to (MORE)

How do you applied entropy to thermodynamics?

Newton's laws state that the fundamental forces of the universe are gravity and magnetism. Don't know if you are into Marvel Comics, and are familiar with the X-men villain "M (MORE)

What happens to the entropy in the reaction?

Entropy increases. In a reaction comprised of sub-reactions, some  sub-reactions may show a decrease in entropy but the entire  reaction will show an increase of entropy. As (MORE)
