The excess entropy of formation of binary alloys has been described as the sum of configurational, vibrational, electronic and magnetic contributions. A relation for configurational and vibrational contributions is given in terms of physical properties of the components and a few empirical constants. It is demonstrated that the simple formula can be applied to calculate the excess entropy of liquid binary alloys.
