### Residual entropy

How can you tell if a system has "low" residual entropy?

### Re: Residual entropy

Residual entropy is the difference in entropy between a state that is not in equilibrium and the state of a substance close to absolute zero. An example is carbon monoxide, which has a dipole moment.
