Just looking for a bit of clarification after rereading my lecture notes for the second law of thermodynamics. I wrote down that the relationship between volume and the number of possible states is a ratio. What is that ratio again or how do we find it?

I believe it has to do with the equation: deltaS=nRln(V2/V1)
