  • $$S=k\ln \Omega$$ Where $\Omega$ is number of microstates.

  • >Disorder actually means lackness of order. So order means in entropy that particles move symmetrically. But particles move randomly we just can say with possibility where it is located but we can't say absolutely where it is at time 't', that's what is known as disorder, isn't it?

I had read "disorder" and "order" of entropy in my book. But I was wondering what "order" and "disorder" actually represent. As Boltzmann said,

$$S=k\ln \Omega$$ Where $\Omega$ is number of microstates.
