Entropy? State Function?

Postby Joseph Nguyen 3L » Mon Jan 23, 2017 11:34 pm

Is entropy a state function? If temperature changes, can't I just do q/T final - q/T initial? What's with the nCpln(T2/T1) equation then?

Entropy is a state function, but I'm not quite sure about the rest.

Entropy is a state function, for it isn't path dependent.
