based on the lecture notes I have, the change in entropy equations from degeneracy and volume seem to be equivalent. ∆S= kbln(W2/W1) and ∆S= kbln(V2/V1) is what I have written... is this true?

The equation for change In Volume is actually delta S = nRln(V2/V1), where n is moles and R is the ideal gas constant-this equation is given on the equation sheet from lavelle

For the change in volume, the equation would be delta S = n x R x ln(V2/V1). From the formula sheet, it seems that the equation to calculate the positional/residual entropy is delta S = KB x ln (W).
