As temperature increases entropy increases temp decreases entropy decreases.

Entropy is always increasing when the process is irreversible.

In some cases, if heat emitting is more than heat absorbing then the entropy is negative.

Entropy is never negative for irreversible process even heat is removed so,

Entropy =change in heat /temperature.

Δs=delta Q/T.
As heat is removed from gas change in heat is negative hence,
Δs= -deltaQ/T.
Hence deltaQ/T= -Δs.
ie. Entropy is negative.

Entropy of system will decrease by removal of heat & increase by adding of heat. But entropy of universe is always increased.

For reversible process entropy is + ve, - ve, and 0.

For irreversible process always +ve.

For a process, entropy can have positive, negative or zero value?

Yes @Ototo erick you are right.

The change in entropy can be negative it is possible somehow but the entropy can't be negative anyhow.

Change in entropy must be negative if temperature is remove and vice versa.

Change in entropy can be negative but entropy can't be.
