## Entropy and Stability

Volume: $\Delta S = nR\ln \frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$
Temperature: $\Delta S = nC\ln \frac{T_{2}}{T_{1}}$

### Entropy and Stability

Is high entropy more stable than low entropy?

For example, which is more stable: a system with entropy 10 or entropy 20?

### Re: Entropy and Stability

When discussing the relationship between entropy in regards to the stability of a system, when a maximum heat source is reached, the point can be considered "stable." The state of maximum thermodynamic stability is reached when entropy is maximized and enthalpy is maximized.
