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

### Clausius Inequality

Can someone explain the Clausius Inequality and its relevance to what we have been learning about thermodynamics? I found the book's explanation to be a bit confusing.

This is basically just a mathematical explanation of the second law of thermodynamics. It gives us a way to determine whether a cyclical process is reversible or irreversible.
