### Assumptions

When can we assume that delta entropy would be the same for different temperatures. Do the temperatures have to be close together?

### Re: Assumptions

We always assume that delta S is the same at different temperatures because we can assume that the difference in delta S between the reactants and products is the same at two different temperatures.

### Re: Assumptions

You have multiple equations for finding the change in entropy. One is . You use this equation when the temperature is constant. The other equation is . This equation is used when you have a final temperature that is different from the initial temperature.

### Re: Assumptions

Temperature affects entropy because at higher temperature, there are more possible states for particles increasing entropy and vice versa for lower temperatures.
