## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a short question which I have been discussing with a fellow student and a professor. The question (which is not a homework question!), is as follows:

If you shift all the energies [itex]E_i \to E_i + E_0[/itex] (thus also shifting the mean energy [itex]U \to U + E_0[/itex]), does the entropy of the system remain the same?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.
