The most simple and direct interpretationTimNguyen said:Hello.
I know that entropy equals the Boltzmann's constant times the natural log of the multiplicity but I do not know the physical interpretation of what "entropy" really is. I understand the units of it are "Joules per Kelvin" but what does that really mean?

It has a good collection of basic articles, especially in dispelling the notion that entropy is nothing more than "disorder".
