    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that the molar entropy of a gas is given by;


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've tried this numerous times. The first part of the question involved getting ln Z for the hemholtz free energy which was found to be;


    The 3/2 is a power. I have tried this numerous times and still unable to get the result mentioned.
