# Which of the following has the lowest entropy: a liquid, a gas, or a crystalline sold?

Entropy increases in the order: solid; liquid; and gas.

It is possible to measure and quantify entropy, which is the statistical probability for disorder, and it is evident that particles in the free gas phase are more random than those in the condensed phases.

A crystalline solid typically has the lowest entropy among the options provided: a liquid, a gas, or a crystalline solid. This is because crystalline solids have highly ordered arrangements of particles, resulting in lower entropy compared to liquids and gases, which have more disordered arrangements. Entropy generally increases with disorder, so a highly ordered system like a crystalline solid tends to have lower entropy than less ordered systems like liquids or gases.
