Boltzmann Equation

Postby Lindsey Chheng 1E » Tue Feb 04, 2020 9:06 pm

Is the Boltzmann Equation relating Degeneracy (W) and Entropy (S)?

Yes, since the equation is s=Kb(lnW), it relates degeneracy and entropy

Yes, the Boltsmann Equation calculates positional entropy using degeneracy (W) and kB (Boltzmann's constant).
