Problem: What is the entropy of a system that has only a single microstate?

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to determine the entropy of a system that has only a single microstate


Recall the equation


S = k lnW


where

S = entropy

k = Boltzmann constant = 1.38x10-23 J/K

W = number of microstate
