When do we use the Boltzmann equation? Do questions specifically ask for it. I've been gone for the past week, so I am lost. Thank you.

Use the Boltzman constant when finding statistical Entropy
∆S=K•lnW

We usually use Boltzmann's equation when a problem gives us a number of molecules and the number of positions each molecule can possess. This is because, given this information, we can find degeneracy (W).

I believe W is the number of molecules to the power of the number of micro states
