### S equation

Does kb equal nR??? Also what is capital W representing and what is kb?

### Re: S equation

W is degeneracy and kB is the boltzmannn constat.

### Re: S equation

-KB is equal to R/Na, where Na is avagadros constant of 6.022 x 10^23, which is how many particles are in 1 mole
-Capital W represents degeneracy, the number of ways of achieving a given energy state
-KB is the boltzman constant, which is equal to 1.381 x 10^-23 J/K
