Yes, they are. Here is how:

#DeltabarS = int_(T_1)^(T_2) (barC_P)/T dT#

#DeltabarH = int_(T_1)^(T_2) barC_P dT#

where

So, let's say you had water, whose chemistry molar heat capacity is defined as

#DeltabarS = int_("273 K")^("298 K") (barC_P)/T dT#

#= barC_P|[ln|T_2| - ln|T_1|]|_("273 K")^("298 K")#

#= 75.375*(ln(298) - ln(273))#

#color(blue)("= 6.604 J/mol"*"K")#

#DeltabarH = int_("273 K")^("298 K") barC_P dT#

#= barC_P(T_2 - T_1)#

#= 75.375(298 - 273)#

#color(blue)("= 1884.38 J/mol")#
