hii have a few questions about entropy:why does the definition
i have a few questions about entropy:
why does the definition of entropy stress the fact that the heat exchange by the system is reversible(dS=dQ_rev/T)?
am i right, that processes are only reversible iff ΔS=0 and therefore e.g. isothermic, isobaric and isochoric processes even of ideal gases are irreversible in general?

I have placed an answer in your other thread, which is basically about the same thing so all the stuff is together in one place.
