# Entropy as number of microstates

## Main Question or Discussion Point

As we know S=Q/T. And

Entropy is defined as number of microstates of a system. So does that prove that, the lower the temperature the more the microstates available?

You have to be careful with your equations. $S=k~\ln(\Omega)$ and for a reversible heat transfer $dS=dQ/T$. So at a lower temperature it requires more transfered heat to make the same change in the log of the number of microstates.
