Total entropy change does not depend on the mass of water?

  1. Oct 25, 2009 #1
    Hello,

    Can someone please briefly explain to me why, if I have a system (water) T1, and introduce it to a heat bath of temperature T2 (where T2>T1), and the are left to reach equilibrium, that the total entropy change does not depend on the mass of water?

    Thank you.

    Re: Entropy

    I don't agree that the total entropy change is independent of the mass of water.
