what is enthapy & entropy driven reaction??

Expert Answer:

If change in enthalpy is negative the reaction will be spontaneous as the products are at lower energy level, that is exothermic reactions are spontaneous. If entropy increases the reaction is spontaneous that is change in entropy is positive. System proceeds spontaneously if randomness or dis order increases.
