Entropy of system, is a measure of the avaialability of its energy. A system with high entropy can do less useful work. This concept was formally used to define the second law of thermodynamics.

Specific Entropy

Specific entropy of a system is the entropy of the unit mass of the system and has the dimension of energy/ mass/temperature. The SI unit of specific entropy is J/(Kg . K). Other units are:
