Answer
there will be a large decrease in free energy

Exothermic reaction accompanied by an increase in entropy (great disorderliness) is spontaneous and if a reaction is spontaneous the free energy is negative which is a decrease in free energy.

It means the reaction is spontaneous.


Reactions are favorable when they result in a decrease in enthalpy and an increase in entropy of the system. When both of these conditions are met, the reaction occurs naturally.

Exothermic reaction accompanied by an

spontaneous and if a reaction is
spontaneous the free energy is negative
which is a decrease in free energy.
An exothermic reaction
is a chemical reaction
that releases energy
through light or heat. It
is the opposite of an
endothermic reaction. Expressed in a
chemical equation: reactants → products +
energy.

Exothermic means that the enthalpy of
reaction is negative, and heat is released
to the surroundings during reaction.
Concerning order and disorder, disorder is
generally taken to mean high entropy, so
an order-to-disorder transition implies an
increase in entropy.
