About Gibbs' paradox (with the mixture entropy for ideal gases): Is the paradox a

**Thermodynamic**paradox?

Because what's bothering me is that in Thermodynamics, the entropy is determined up to a "constant", allegedly, [tex]\[

S_0

\]

[/tex], which in my opinion is dependent of [tex]\[

N

\]

[/tex]. And so there shouldn't be a paradox. (Because we would have to chose the functional dependence as [tex]\[

S_0 \left( N \right) = - Nk_B \ln \left( N \right) + \tilde S_0

\]

[/tex])

Am I right? Do you understand what I'm trying to say?
