What are the different types of entropy such as positional entropy and can someone explain when each occurs

the 2 main types are residual/positional/statistical and thermal entropy. Residual entropy is related to the number of microstates a system can have, which increases with greater volume or greater number of states or greater number of atoms (calculated by S = kblnW or deltaS = nrln(v2/v1)). Thermal entropy is related to the temperature or heat a system has, with greater heats leading to more entropy, and is calculated by deltaS = nCln(t2/t1).
