Microcanonical ensemble => constant entropy?

  1. Apr 19, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In a microcanonical ensemble is entropy constant? Since there is only one macrostate of energy.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think so.

    But entropy is not only dependent on energy but also temperture in the system? Entropy also depends on avaliable amount of space in which the particles can occupy?
