Hi here!

(

I am a bit confused about entropy change statements:

In most textbooks is given:

[tex] \Delta S = n (C_V ln \frac{ \ T_{2}}{T_1} + R ln \frac{ \ V_{2}}{V_1}) [/tex]

where n - moles of gas. And dimension of entropy is [J/K]

But now I have one book there entropy change is defined using specific heats:

[tex]

\Delta S = m (c_v ln \frac{ \ p_{2}}{p_{1}} + c_p ln \frac{ \ V_{2}}{V_{1}})

[/tex]

where m - mass of gass, and dimension is [J/(kmol*K)]

I can't understand where this isobaric specific heat gets here!

Ok, I understand that these entropies essentially are given for different measures of amount of gass. First is given for moles, but second for kilograms. (am I right??)

But how to involve specific heats there is obscure for me.

Thanks!
