These processes are shown in reverse. The situations shown are so highly improbable that we would not expect to observe them in nature.
Combustion Reactions  
Combustion reactions of methane, hydrogen, hexane, and natural gas in chlorine are demonstrated.

Thermodynamics : ATPFromGlucose (8 Variations)
When glucose is oxidized in the human body it releases a lot of Gibbs free energy. Rather than waste this free energy, the body stores much of it in the form of ATP. The following reaction shows this process of storing some of the energy from glucose in ATP. This is an example of coupled reactions in a biological system.

The label on a can of Coke says that it contains 39 g of sugar. Assume that all of the sugar is glucose (even though it isn't), and calculate how many moles of ATP can be produced theoretically by the oxidation of 39.0 g of glucose.

Thermodynamics : CompareEntropyQual (16 Variations)
Indicate which substance in each of the following pairs of substances you expect to have higher entropy. Assume that you have a mole of each substance and all substances are at the same temperature.
Thermodynamics : PredictEntropyChange (10 Variations)
For each of the following processes, indicate whether you expect the entropy change of the system to be positive or negative.

Configurational Entropy Revisited  Frank L. Lambert
Positional entropy should be eliminated from general chemistry instruction and replaced by emphasis on the motional energy of molecules as enabling entropy change.

Disorder (GCMP)  David M. Whisnant
Disorder: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". A spontaneous change is one that has a natural tendency to occur without needing to be driven by an external influence. This problem will explore the influence of entropy, a measure of disorder, on the spontaneity of a few processes. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
