Entropy production, originated from an ideal gas second-order reaction taking place in a closed system, has been stochastically formulated by defining the entropy in a form similar to the conditional entropy used in the theory of information. The entropy is introduced in the natural way as a result of the partial factorization of joint probability for reaction states devised for the approximate solution of the stochastic process of the second-order reaction. The entropy production has also been discussed in comparison with the usual one.
