The dimensions of entropy change are given at your link:
More precisely: Entropy (change) in chemistry measures either by

1) how much molecular motional energy has been spread out in a reversible process divided by the constant absolute temperature, T

deltaS = q(rev)/T


Yes the disorder or order is a red herring … this is the point.

So why did you bring it up in the first place?
So what is the probability of having a particular order of a shuffled set of cards? Is not entropy a reflection of the number of ways a system can be shuffled rather than what is the probability of any order of that system?

Which was answered by showing that a number and its reciprocal answers both questions but has nothing to do with entropy. :scratch:
