Calculate the change in entropy when the pressure of 1.5mol Ne(g) is decreased isothermally from 15.0 atm to .500 atm. Assume ideal behavior.

From the equation delta S= nRln(V2/V1), using Boyle's law P1V1=P2V2, derive the equation delta S =nRln(P1/P2), and plug the values in.

1.50mol x 8.314 J/mol/K x ln(15.0atm/0.500atm)=42.4 J/K
