 
The Entropy of Lead©

Abstract  
These files present the determination of the third law entropy of lead using numerical methods, i.e. the trapezoid rule. This is an excellent example of the use of a numerical method learned by students in calculus classes. The documents permit students to explore the method in a chemistry rich context. Exercises included in the documents extend student skills and reinforce the lesson in an efficient manner. Prerequisites include basic calculus and basic Mathcad or Mathematica skills. The material would be useful for students studying thermochemistry in first year course in thermodynamics.
