ΔS and \( \Delta H\) are having negative sign.
The reaction given in the question represents the formation of Cl molecule from Cl atoms. As the formation of bond takes place in the given reaction. So, energy is released. So,\( \Delta H\) is negative.
Also, 2 moles of Chlorine atoms are having more randomness than 1 mole of chlorine molecule. So, the spontaneity is decreased. Thus, \( \Delta S\) is negative.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
