calculating entropy of irreversible and reversible expansion reactions

Postby Alicia Lin 2F » Thu Feb 06, 2020 12:18 pm

I know for calculating work, there are different equations used for reversible vs irreversible reactions. What are the different equations used to calculate entropy of reversible and irreversible reactions?

I'm not sure about entropy changes in direct relation with reversible and irreversible reactions, but I know that under certain conditions, you can use the equations of nRln(v2/v1) and nCln(T2/T1) to calculate entropy change. These equations were from wednesday's lecture, and they're derived either by using deltaS = q/T or ds=dq/T.
