## Difference in volume and temperature

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

### Difference in volume and temperature

What is the difference between using the volume and temperature change? If they are both calculating entropy change, does it result in the same value?

### Re: Difference in volume and temperature

You use them in the appropriate situations, so if a system does expansion work at constant temperature, then you probably have to use the volume change equation. If the system changes temperature at constant volume, it's likely you have to use the temperature change equation.
