Boltzmann Equation for Entropy:
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
This equation is for residual or positional entropy where you take into consideration the degeneracy value to determine the entropy value (as opposed to the other equation that takes in values for heat and temperature)
W is the degeneracy of the system. Entropy is a measure of disorder and thus is related to degeneracy. This equation helps quantify and define this relationship. W is measured by the number of possible states all the molecules in a system could have. If you had 'a' possible configurations and 'n' particles, W would be a^n. S would be found by using KblnW with this equation.
