Thermodynamics : ThermoKinStability (4 Variations)


Compare white and grey tin, both of which exist as solid phases of tin near room temperature.

Phase Hof (kJ/mol) So (J/(K*mol))
white tin 0 51.5
grey tin -2.1 44.8

Which type of stability does each exhibit at 40 oC?

white tin {1:MULTICHOICE:kinetically stable#No, that's incorrect.~=thermodynamically stable#Correct!}

grey tin {1:MULTICHOICE:=kinetically stable#Correct!~thermodynamically stable#No, that's incorrect.}
