Why does increasing the temperature cause an increase in the entropy of the system?

Increasing the Temp causes the kinetic energy of the particles to increase which makes them able to occupy more possible states at a faster rate therefore increasing entropy.

Increase in temperature yields a larger temperature change (where T2 and T1 is compared) and ther larger the temperature increase, the larger the deltaS (assuming the volume is not changing), as seen with the equation deltaS = nCln (t2/t1).

If you increase temperature, you increase entropy because ..
(1) More energy put into a system excites the molecules and the amount of random activity.
(2) As a gas expands in a system, entropy increases.
(3) When a solid becomes a liquid, its entropy increases.

Since entropy is a measure of disorder, higher temperature means more disorder.
