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

What is the delta entropy of the surroundings and system during an irreversible expansion, and is it any different to an adiabatic system where q = 0?

For the surroundings it's 0, the system is W=-PDeltaV I believe. I'm not sure about the second part of your question though, sorry about that.

The delta S for an irreversible expansion means that the surroundings change in entropy is 0. In an adiabatic system the total heat would be 0. This doesn't necessarily mean the same for irreversible expansion.
