Entropy Changes Due to Change in Pressure

Postby Mia Navarro 1D » Sat Feb 03, 2018 3:28 pm

Why is the initial pressure the numerator of the ln segment of the equation, though volume and temperature changes entail the respective final value as their numerators?

ΔS = nR ln (V1/V2)
using boyle's law for ideal gases:
P1V1 = P2V2
P1/P2 = V2/V1
replacing this in the equation:
ΔS = nR ln (P1/P2)

It is always good to remember that pressure is inversely proportional to volume.
