When a process results in an increase in the number of microstates available to the system, the change in entropy is 1. positive. 2. negative. 3. zero. 4. All of these are possible, depending upon specific circumstances. 5. There is no connection between entropy and the number of microstates available to the system.
Ludwig Boltzmann defined an equation for the probability and entropy: where S is entropy Ω is the number of micro states available for a state of a system (both energy and position) k b is the Boltzmann constant: Ω = ln b k S a b N R k =

Water Ice Examples of processes where positional entropy increases: - gas expansion - salt dissolving - diffusion of gases/liquids - ice melting - evaporation Positional entropy
Positional entropy and volume (observe gas expansion: liquid nitrogen demo) When volume increases - more positional arrangements are possible Calculate change in in entropy Δ S for gas expansion, V 2 =2V 1
