Problem 43P

Some advanced textbooks define entropy by the formula

where the sum runs over all. microstates accessible to the system and P(s) is the probability of the system being in microstate s .

(a) For an isolated system, P(s) = l/ Ω for all accessible states s. Show that in this case the preceding formula reduces to our familiar definition of entropy.

(b) For a system in thermal equilibrium with a reservoir at temperature T, P(s) =. Show that in this case as well, the preceding formula agrees with what we already know about entropy.
