quick question about the Units of Entropy

Postby Brian_Ho_2B » Mon Feb 10, 2020 6:45 pm

I know that the units of entropy are joules (or kJ) over degrees Celcius or Kelvin. Is using kJ/C interchangeable with kJ/K? I believe that's what Prof. Lavelle did when we were doing practice problems in lecture today, but I wanted to confirm whether or not those two units for entropy are interchangeable, because I know that Celcius and Kelvin use the same scale.

I thought the standard unit for temperature was Kelvin, so I'm not sure about it being interchangeable.
