             – Some hints that you may have missed in homework:
                                  Exothermic reactions can be reported 2 ways:
                                                                                       A   +   C  —>  AC   +   40. kJ
                                                                                   A   +   C  —>  AC    ∆H = –40. kJ
                               *Notice the heat or energy is written in the product side of the reaction to show 
                                 that there is a NET release of energy.
                                 Endothermic reactions can be reported 2 ways:
                                                                            40. kJ  +   AC  —>  A   +   C
                                                                                                 AC  —>  A   +   C   ∆H = +40. kJ
                               *Notice the heat or energy is written in the reactant side of the reaction to show 
                                 there is a NET absorption of energy.
                B) Careful with what you are discussing in terms of bonds or IMF in dissolution/ionization reactions.
                C) Solving for the q of a reaction and calculation the heat released is not the same.  It just how it is worded.
                                                                q =   HEAT  for exothermic reactions 
                                                                    the negative means released (direction)
                                                                    HEAT is positive value so if I ask for the heat released I am  
                                                                 looking for the absolute value of the q as I am already implying
                                                                 the negative sign by saying released.
                                                                Its the same if I ask for the decrease in temperature. You still give                                                                    me a positive temperature.
3.  Today we start our discussion towards the Second Law of Thermodynamics:
     Please read through my notes regarding the 3* Laws of Thermodynamics below.
Class notes: Some people have expressed that they like the written notes even if there are a some grammatical errors!
Today’s Notes:
0th Law:  Hold unto your seats, this will be revealed in the lectures below!!
1st Law:         ∆Esys = –∆Esurr    –  Law of Conservation Mass – Uplifting Law!!!
Because of this law it seems that we should be able to create 100% efficient engines and possibly perpetual energy systems that recycle energy forever!!!  Uplifting Law!
2nd Law:       ∆Suniv > 0  – Dispersion of Heat –  “What a Bummer Law!”
                                                          disorder of energy 
                               ∆S = entropy!  Is it enthalpy (∆H)???  Noooo!  Its ENTROPY (∆S) !!!!!!!!!
The second Law tell us that entropy ∆S of the universe must increase for a spontaneous process.
Entropy is the movement of concentrated energy (free energy) to less concentrated energy and thus we cannot create any pathway we desire for energy. Because of this the amount of concentrated (free energy) must move  (disperse) to less concentrated areas of Energy.  A lot teachers will discuss entropy as the change of the disorder of a system, surroundings or total universe (system + surroundings universe) but technically that is not completely true as it is really about the change of the disorder of the energy (dispersion of energy).  Changes in overall disorder do parallel the energy dispersion (spreading out of the energy) so overall disorder explanations do work but to truly understand entropy you need to think about ∆S as the change in the dispersion of energy.
3rd law:   S˚ (absolute entropy of chemical) = Zero at 0 Kelvin “We are limited by 0 K !”
This creates the AZ zone!!!! (Absolute Zero) zone.  This is the lowest amount of energy zone.  At absolute zero there is no more movement as Temperature is proportional to kinetic energy.  We say absolute entropy S˚  as we are evaluating the dispersion of energy by how molecules move or vibrate. *Remember that bond enthalpies are averages because the stretch and recoil around the average bond length ( and stretch an recoil around their average bond enthalpy!)  
So at 0 K there is no more kinetic energy and every chemical that is in a crystal lattice will have the lowest amount of ability to move along each bond (stretch and recoil) and thus have the lowest ability to “disperse energy”!  This is the starting point at which we measure the absolute entropy of each chemical as we increase the temperature to the standard thermodynamic conditions denoted by the  S˚  (degree sign after the S).  Remember that the standard thermodynamic condition in tables are 25˚ and 1 atm of pressure.  The absolute entropy given in our tables IS LIKE THE REVERSE OF HEAT OF FORMATION!  Its the the total value of the chemicals ability to move as a molecules or move along its bonds.
Making a graphic here…
So the first law is so uplifting because every pathway is possible but the 2nd law is a downer because it tells us that every pathways IS not possible as there are pathways that are favored (allowable) over other pathways by the universe. What is worse is the 3rd Law which states that we are limited in these possibilities by 0K and yet we cannot achieve it!  
*We cannot get to O K because the energy needed to be removed by the system to get to O K will wind up reheating that system (2nd Law = Hot —-> Cold!)
This Energy that must disperse for the second law includes :
          kinetic energy  (∆H) and Potential Energy (bonds or degree of freedom of particles)
A Spontaneous process is an allowable pathway that the Universe provides because the process is moving in the direction that takes Concentrated Energy and is dispersing it  OVERALL in the Universe.  A better way to say this is that a spontaneous process or reaction ALWAYS increases the entropy ∆S or the universe.  A spontanenous has a pathway that requires no continual input of energy.  Example: Riding a pony uphill.  Or burning of paper! 
Spontaneous reactions or processes provide FREE Energy to do work. 
If the reaction or process does not increase the ∆S of the universe then the reaction has no pathway to occur and it is Non-spontaneous. It only occurs if there is constant supply of energy to force it forward. Example: Carrying the pony uphill! Also photosynthesis!
Non-Spontaneous reactions REQUIRE Free Energy to Make IT OCCUR!
Because ∆S MUST increases we cannot create engines that are 100 efficient because we must lose concentrated Energy (Free Energy) to the universe with every energy conversion. This is reason we cannot have a perpetual energy device that recycles energy!  There can never really be renewable energy!!! “What a Bummer!”
Spontaneous processes are Pathways that the Universe allows, however we can manipulate chemical reactions by Le Chateliers Principle OR WE CAN FORCE an nonspontaneous to occur IF WE USE FREE ENERGY to make it happen.  Last year we learned about energy coupling where we use spontaneous process (cellular respiration to make ATP) to Drive non-spontaneous processes (anabolically making large macro molecules like enzymes from amino acids).
            3. Use the follow along by taking notes.  If you want to use the Thermo pages I gave you last week or your

Today’s Class Lectures:
Lecture 1:  Connecting Heats of formation, Bond Enthalpies and Hess Law with explanation of the Laws of Thermodynamics.  Here is where I start discussing ENTROPY, ∆S (for reactions) and S˚  (from tables).
Everything we do from Thermodynamic is based on the 2nd law which is the measure of whether a process is spontaneous!  Remember we started this in SEPTEMBER with our voltaic cells (batteries)!!!

YouTube Video

  Lecture 2:  I derive Gibbs Free Energy Formula which measures FREE ENERGY of the Universe using 
 the systems ∆H and ∆S.  I also discuss the signs of the thermo quantities that you need.
 The key here is that we ARE ABLE TO MEASURE THE ∆S of the universe by measuring the systems ∆H, T (K), and ∆S (of the system = degree of motion of molecules or ions)! We have a quantity that can measure whether a reaction has a pathway to succeed (Spontaneity!!!!!) and that quantity is ∆G!!!
Since everything we do is based on the 2nd Law, and ∆G is the measure of the second law, everything we do is based on ∆G!  I derive the equation for ∆G below!
We will now be using the following formulas:


If you notice in your Thermodynamic tables there are 2 other thermodynamic quantities,  S(absolute) and ∆G.


We can calculate the ∆S and ∆G through tablature by using the following formulas.  
Also ∆G can be determined through a formula that measures the Universe’s Entropy Change by just looking at the system!


∆G = H – T∆S


∆G = H – T∆S!!!!!!

THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS TO A GREAT JOB. Those of you trying to do the least amount will pay a price in your understanding and eventually in your grade. Listen to every minute of every lecture, complete every worksheet (and review with keys), and read everything that I post here.  Follow my plan.  Everything has a purpose.  I know it harder out of class but that is just how it is.
Think.  Do you think other AP Chemistry classes are doing what you are doing?   Ultimately your AP grade is based on (statistics) how you do compared to others that take it.
1. Please review Thermo Quantities and Sign Form. I have graded it and emailed it back you.

2.  We will review our Thermodynamic quantities, ∆G, ∆H, and ∆S, especially the Second Law of Thermodynamics!!
    a) 2nd law of Thermodynamics: ∆S universe  must increase!
    b) Derivation of ∆G = which is really a measure of the ∆S universe.
         – The cool thing is that we can relate the ∆S universe by relating the 2 system’s quantities:
           ∆H system and ∆S system .
      c) ∆S system  = the difference of the absolute entropy of molecules in the chemical reactions from reactants to products.
                                    Tablature values.
     d) calculation of ∆G from equation or tablature.
    e) Always Rule, Never Rule, Sometime Rule (Enthalpy driven or Entropy driven)
     f) Values of ∆G
     g)  OH and this was ∆G from standard conditions.
Previous recorded Lecture:
The most beautiful Thermodynamic equation that measures the entropy of the universe by measuring the systems ∆H  and  ∆S (degrees of freedom of particles).  You need to understand its derivation!
TOTAL Entropy of the Universe change is measured by the systems:
– the heat releases from an exothermic reaction actually speeds up the surrounding matter and makes them disperse the heat outward so that a systems release of heat (-H) will actually increase the Entropy of the surroundings.  H or exothermic values are favorable to the universe as in increases entropy!
 +H or endothermic values are unfavorable because the consume or absorb thermal energy away from the surroundings.  Endothermic reactions create products with higher potential energy and thus create concentrated sources or energy, which decreases entropy.
– The change of entropy of the system (∆S) is a measure of the absolute entropy changes in chemical reaction that will either increase or decrease the degrees of freedom of molecules or ions ability to move and spread out or disperse the heat. If in the course of a chemical or physical process the products have greater change in their degrees of freedom or Entropy (∆S) then the entropy increases in the system, thus +∆S is a favorable condition, while a ∆S is an unfavorable condition that lead to less ability of molecules or ions to dissipate heat with less degrees of freedom.
                                                                    ∆G = H – T∆S
If the entropy of the universe increases then ∆G negative and the chemical reaction is SPONTANEOUS!  THERE IS A PATHWAY AND FREE ENERGY (∆G) decreases as it is being released so that you can do work without a constant supply of energy!! (riding a pony or a kayak moving with the current).
Hand Warmer Demo: The crystallization or precipitate must give off heat to be spontaneous!!
                                               Entropy Driven!!!  The favorable entropy (-∆H) can overcome the unfavorable (∆S) if                                                   enough heat is released.
                                                –∆H  = the hand warmer reaction releases Heat to the surroundings!
                                        ∆S  = a solid is being formed and solids have less ability to move than other
                                                                                                                      phases of matter.
                                                                     ∆G =     ∆H        –   T  ∆S
                                    ∆G can be negative  = if ∆H is              –   T    to overcome 
                                                                                                               large enough                the unfavorable
                                                                                                               negative value              negative value
                      Sometimes Rule                        ∆G   =         (-)            –   T  (-)
                                                                                                 favorable                       unfavorable
                                                                            ∆G   =         (-)             +  T  (+)
So as long the ∆H is negative enough to overcome the positive value at the end the ∆G will be negative (which means the reaction increases the universes entropy and the reaction is spontaneous!).  If that is the case like in the hand warmer demo below than the reaction is spontaneous and is ENTHALPY driven!
And so any solidification or crystallization MUST be exothermic. Ask Gavin A if his arm got warm when they put a cast on his arm last year?  When it snows the air gets a bit warmer!  Freezing is exothermic. Cement solidifying in exothermic!

Today’s Notes:
Okay we have seen that that changes in concentrations (molarity) of solutes in a solution or partial pressures in a mixture of gases can gauge or measure the change in a systems entropy (S) from nonstandard values we get from tablature.  This means the S(from standard conditions) can be converted into S (from nonstandard conditions) by how much the concentration of molarities change from 1M (for c) or 1 atm (for p)  (standard conditions).
                                            S   =    S0    –  R  ln c             or              S =     S0    –  R  ln p
             We track how much the c or p changes from 1 by using the reaction quotient (Q).
                                                                        S  =    S0    –  R  ln Q
                                                                    Q = [Products]x   
Since the systems entropy is connected to overall entropy of the universe in the Gibbs free energy equation:
                                                               ∆G0 = H0 – T∆S0
When we substitute the nonstandard entropy (S) into the above equation and simplify we get an equation that measures nonstandard ∆G!!! We are not bound by standard conditions no more!!
                                                              ∆G = ∆G0  RT ln Q
This means that we can evaluate chemicals reactions spontaneity based on a evaluation of the what the current concentrations or partial pressures are (Q).  Changing the concentrations of the products and reactants changes the ∆G or spontaneity! 
This is the equation of Le Chateliers Principle!
This equation is your reference tables:

1. Collect Thermo 2 test and review with the key.
2. Derivation of  ∆G formula that ties spontaneity with equilibrium (Keq).
    Short lecture below!
Today’s small lecture from a tall teacher:
3.  Using our new formula of ∆G that relates to Keq (equilibrium constants):
Ok so we should understand that the larger the Keq the more more negative the ΔG and the smaller the Keq the  more positive ΔG is.  
This is intuitive but it relates to the following formula:
SO a very large K value (really a Q at equilibrium position) will make the ln K part of the equation VERY LARGE and thus that would make the – RT ln K become a LARGER negative value.
                                                                     ΔGo=− value = VERY Spontaneous!
Why?  Because the equilibrium position favors the formation or production of products MUCH more than the reactants.  If the products are favored so much more than the reactant than the reaction HAS A PREFERRED PATHWAY TO MOVE FORWARD!  Isn’t that what spontaneity is!!!!!!!
If the K value is small the reactants are favored and the REVERSE reaction in more favored and a small K value (which would be a number less than 1 would make the ln (number less than 1) = a negative number.
                                                                               ΔGo= ( negative value due to the log of a number less than 1 = – #)
                                                                    ΔGo=− ( negative) 
                                                                   ΔGo= positive and non spontaneous in the forward reaction
So if your not very good in the forward direction you become good in the reverse and that is why the reactants are favored in small K values!
Hey that formula is  in our reference tables!!! In Blue?

We know that increases and decreases of Temperature CHANGE Keq position or value.  An Endothermic Reaction is favored in higher temperatures and an Exothermic Reaction is favored in lowered temperatures. We understand this by setting our standard ΔG formulas together and looking at the ln K equals (specifically at the ΔH part of the equation).
Please Read before completing Homework:


So what does all of this mean?
When the temperature increases the Endothermic reaction (pathway) is favored.  
So when the temperature increases the endothermic pathway or direction will become more spontaneous. 
This means that a reaction will “shift” towards the endothermic reaction when the temperature increases BECAUSE the Keq (K) CHANGES!!!   The equilibrium constant is sensitive to temperature.  The “shift” occurs BEcAUSE the Keq changes. This is unlike all other stresses.
In the demo with the NO2/N2O tubes we figured out that the chemical reaction looked like this:
2 NO2(g)  —->  N2O4 (g)  +  Heat

                                                             Brown                            clear

The reaction shifts to left when we heat the tubes AND we saw this in the lecture.  The tube became DARKER when heated because When The Temperature Increases the Reaction Shifts to the Endothermic Pathway which is in the Left direction.  In this case, the Keq became smaller with increasing temperature.
**Temperature increases ——> Shift in the Endothermic Direction (in the left direction above)
                        And when considering an exothermic reaction with a ΔH= negative value
**Temperature decreases ——> Shift in the Exothermic Direction (in the right direction)
which is why the tubes get clearer when placed in ice.
4/9  – Friday –  “B” Day  Homework –          
1.  Please make one more submission to the Non standard  ΔG form posted Tuesday if needed.
2.  Please complete the Le Chateliers Principle Side 1 and review with the key.  Think while you are doing the worksheet, “What are we doing with Q in relation to K? “When does Keq move in relation to Q?
THis worksheet should look familiar!!!!

5. Complete form below:
Equilibrium Ice table / intro to KSP / Q vs K in action:
I made mistake in question 2 (although the answer of the Ksp is correct):  
I should have (1.3 x 10-4 /2) in the value for the equilibrium concentration for the CrO4-2 ion in both the ice table and inside the formula for the solving of the Ksp value.
I made a mistake (imagine that!) on number three. In the ICE table in for the second reactant I should of calculated 1.06 x 10-3 not .065 x 10-3.  THanks Caroline!!!!
The final Keq is calculated correct but I had the wrong value there.
