Entropy of an Ideal Gas

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

Entropy of an Ideal Gas

How is the entropy of an ideal gas related to its volume in an isothermal expansion?

Re: Entropy of an Ideal Gas

When there is a change in volume during isothermal expansion, the entropy of an ideal gas is related to its volume by the equation: delta S=nRln(V2/V1).
