conversion of entropy
Are two units kj/kg.k and kj/kg.c equal?(about unit of entropy)
I got in trouble to calculate the entropy unit?

Always use Kelvin for temperature units because Celsius is not an SI unit. Celsius should be seldom used unless you're quoting a temperature in Celsius (like T= 25 $\displaystyle ^o$C)

Without any doubt entropy is kJ/K. Note entropy is an extensive quantity.
The units you wrote do not correspond to entropy, but to specific entropy with units kJ/kg.K.
As advised above one should always use the Kelvin units for temperature. When units are in denominator we indeed are using corresponding delta value of unit magnitude on a given scale. This fact needs to be always kept in mind.
