Without using Appendix $\mathrm{B}$ , predict the sign of $\Delta S^{\circ}$ for

(a) $2 \mathrm{K}(s)+\mathrm{F}_{2}(g) \longrightarrow 2 \mathrm{KF}(s)$

(b) $\mathrm{NH}_{3}(g)+\mathrm{HBr}(g) \longrightarrow \mathrm{NH}_{4} \mathrm{Br}(s)$

(c) $\mathrm{NaClO}_{3}(s) \longrightarrow \mathrm{Na}^{+}(a q)+\mathrm{ClO}_{3}^{-}(a q)$

Calculate the total water vapor pressure in the air on the following two days: $(a)$ a hot summer day, with the temperature $30^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and the relative humidity at $65 \% ;(b)$ a cold winter day, with the temperature $5^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and the relative humidity at 75$\%$ .

You may have noticed that when you compress the air in a bicycle pump, the body of the pump gets warmer. (a) Assuming the pump and the air in it comprise the system, what is the sign of w when you compress the air? (b) What is the sign of $q$ for this process? (c) Based on your answers to parts (a) and (b), can you determine the sign of $\Delta E$ for compressing the air in the pump? If not, what would you expect for the sign of $\Delta E ?$ What is your reasoning? [Section 5.2$]$
