Entropy Calculator

The Entropy Calculator will calculate the:

  1. Change in the entropy of a thermodynamic system in terms of heat exchanged and temperature of system
  2. Change in the entropy of a system in terms of gas parameters and molar specific heats
Entropy Calculator

Note: Write the ΔQ value as negative when the system releases heat to its surroundings.

Entropy Calculator Results (detailed calculations and formula below)
The change in the entropy of a thermodynamic system in terms of heat exchanged and temperature of system is:
  • J/K for the hot object
  • J/K for the cold object
  • J/K in the universe
The change in the entropy of a thermodynamic system in terms of volume, temperature and molar specific heat at constant volume J/K
