Temperature and Entropy

Postby Maria Solis Disc 1G » Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:53 pm

During lecture today it was said that as temperature increases, thermal motion increases, meaning that entropy increases. Using the equation S=q/T it is implied that entropy is inversely proportional to entropy. Can anyone explain this please?

When temperature increases it is implied there is a change in temperature. The formula only accounts for constant temperature. Therefore we can't use the equation for a change in temperature. We would need the equation of nCln(t2/t1) for the change of temperature.
