## Entropy at quilibrium

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

### Entropy at quilibrium

Why is entropy at its maximum when it’s at equilibrium ?

Because of the second law of thermodynamics, entropy can never decrease, so when a system reaches equilibrium that means that entropy has maxed out, and it can't increase either because every state has been reached.Hope that makes sense.

At equilibrium, the entropy cannot change any longer and has reached its maximum value.
