How would you calculate the two residual entropies of NO and BF3 with the S=Kb ln W formula? I don't understand how to determine whether it's a two particles in one of two states or one particle in one of two states.

Consider the 3D structure of the two molecules. How many ways can you orient one vs. the other?
