### 1/22 Lecture (Boltzmann Equation)

On the lecture slide explaining the Boltzmann equation, it says "thermodynamic property ('small' error in S)" and "statistical ('large' error in W)." I'm not exactly sure what this is saying. Could someone clarify to me their significance in this context?

This was just answered. See viewtopic.php?f=131&t=26155&p=78858&hilit=Boltzmann

Use the search for "Boltzmann".

Return to “Third Law of Thermodynamics (For a Unique Ground State (W=1): S -> 0 as T -> 0) and Calculations Using Boltzmann Equation for Entropy”
