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

Deriving Formulas

Will we need to know how to derive formulas for the midterm? Or is it just something he showed us in class in order to provide background for the concept?

Re: Deriving Formulas

I would assume anything covered in lecture is fair game, but it's probably smarter to focus on the application of formulas since the formulas themselves will be given on the constants and equations sheet.

Re: Deriving Formulas

I don't believe the outlines include derivation of the formulas but I think knowing them is helpful in understanding when to apply which formulas.
