Hello List,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand Boltzmann defined entropy as log W where W is the number of microstates in the system time a constant "k" ; hence S= k Log W.

Can someone explain to me where the logarithmic relationship comes from please ?

Many thanks in advance,
