Entropy is an absolute quantity. It is also extensive.

Hence the entropy change is equal to the entropy of the products - the entropy of the reactants.

When I looked on the mark scheme, first you had to divide that big number by the delta H. Then you had to do something else.

But I don't understand what you are telling here? Do you mean SP-SR?

You divide by delta H to find the number of moles of glucose produced from that much energy, since enthalpy is in kJ/mol. You'd then want to multiply by 6 to give the number of moles of CO2. Since from the balanced equation there is 6:1 ratio of CO2:glucose. Then use the molar mass of CO2 to work out the mass taken in by the plants

Maybe it's just me but I can't actually see a question in the part about entropy ... :confused:

Sorry I got it now thanks to the above user.

I posted that part as it was required to work out the question.
