## entropy change

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

### entropy change

Why is entropy change smaller at higher temperatures? Does this only occur in special circumstances?

### Re: entropy change

You can answer this question by looking at the equation delta s = q/T. If the temperature is higher than the delta s will go down, and vise versa

### Re: entropy change

Temperature is negatively proportional to entropy change. Thus, higher temperatures result in smaller values of the change in entropy.
