Entropy unit

Postby Anna_Kim_2E » Mon Feb 13, 2017 12:33 pm

So last week in the review session, the TA said that entropy should always be written in Joules and when in kJ we should convert it to J. Is there a specific reason why it has to be in J/Kmol and not kJ/Kmol?

Entropy is usually a small value, so putting in joules is typically the norm.
