Kyanite, sillimanite, and andalusite all have the formula $\mathrm{Al}_{2} \mathrm{SiO}_{5}$. Each is stable under different conditions (see the graph at right). At the point where the three phases intersect:

(a) Which mineral, if any, has the lowest free energy?

(b) Which mineral, if any, has the lowest enthalpy?

(c) Which mineral, if any, has the highest entropy?

(d) Which mineral, if any, has the lowest density?

(a) Using Figure 19.12 as a model, sketch how the entropy of water changes as it is heated from $-50^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ to $110^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ at sea level. Show the temperatures at which there are vertical increases in entropy. (b) Which process has the larger entropy change: melting ice or boiling water? Explain.

Explain how an exothermic reaction changes the entro-

py of the surroundings. Does the enthalpy change for

such a reaction increase or decrease $\Delta G_{\text { system }} ?$ Explain.
