    Why does entropy increase when liquid water separates into H+ Ions and OH- ions in solution? Thanks

    Entropy is a measure of the amount of disorder or randomness in a system. It is higher when particles can move more freely (so a gas has higher entropy than a liquid, for example). By definition if you've got more particles, you'll have higher entropy as it has more disorder. If that doesn't explain it, I suggest checking out www.chemguide.co.uk.
