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

### reversible system

When a system expands reversibly, does that only mean that change in entropy of the total system and surroundings is 0?

Yes, when a system expands reversibly the total entropy of a system and its surroundings is unchanged.

Hope this helps! :)

### Re: reversible system

Yes because whatever entropy the system loses is gained by the surroundings, so the entropy change of the universe is zero.
