In the expression for entropy
we write : delta S = q/T. But it is also mentioned that the process in which heat is added is reversible.
Why should the process be reversible?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, it is dS = dq/T (dS and dq are infinitesimal) If the process is not reversible, unfortunately, dS > dq/T, but we do not know by how much.
