Boltzmann Equation

How do we know when to use the Boltzmann Equation?

A usual tip off to use the boltzman's equation is that they talk about micro states or state spaces. The midterm problem described the state spaces of nanoparticles.

Use the Boltzmann equation whenever microstates is mentioned to calculate the changes in Entropy.

Like said above, microstates and talk about degeneracy should indicate that the Boltzmann equation would be at play.
