Conceptualizing the Boltzmann Equation

Postby Hector_Galarza_2E » Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:13 pm

In lecture it was stated that in the equation S=Kb*lnW that a large error in W would lead to a small error in S? What does this mean and theoretically would a small error in W then lead to a large error in S?

it's basically saying any error in W, even a relatively large one, wouldn't cause a large error in S
so no, a small error in W wouldn't cause a large error in S
