## Entropy of Transition

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

### Entropy of Transition

How do you find the entropy of transition at a temperature other than the transition temperature?

### Re: Entropy of Transition

There are four steps that need to be done to find the entropy of transition at a temperature other than the transition temperature. If vaporization is involved, you first have to heat the liquid to its normal boiling point (ΔS = Cln(T2/T1)). Then, you have to allow it to vaporize (ΔSovap = ∆Hvap/Tb). Next, you have to cool the vapor back to the desired temperature (ΔS = Cln(T2/T1)). Lastly, you sum the three entropies. A similar process is done for melting.
