If 12007 kJ of heat is lost to the surroundings with an ambient temperature of 25 degrees centigrade during a cooling process, and the ambient temperature of the surroundings is unaffected by the heat addition, what is the entropy change of the surroundings?

If Δs=∫δQ/T, then Δs=ΔQ/T=12007 kJ/(25+273.15)K= 40.272 kJ/K.

Is my thinking process here correct?

Thanks!
