  • The entropy change of a specified mass m (a closed system) during a process is simply

$$\Delta S=m \Delta s=m\left(s_{2}-s_{1}\right) \quad(\mathrm{kJ} / \mathrm{K})$$

Which is the difference between the entropy values at the final and initial states.

  • The entropy ofa fixed mass does not change during a process that is internally reversibleand adiabatic. This process is called isentropic process

$$\Delta s=0 \quad$$ or $$\quad s_{2}=s_{1} \quad(\mathrm{k} \mathrm{J} / \mathrm{kg} \cdot \mathrm{K})$$
