Thermodynamics is the study of heat, thermo, and work, dynamics we will be learning about energy transfer during chemical and physical changes, and how we can predict what kind of changes will occur. The second law of thermodynamics says, in simple terms, entropy always increases this principle explains, for example, why you can't unscramble an egg.
Thermodynamics: thermodynamics, science of the relationship between heat, work, temperature, and energy.
The second law of thermodynamics many texts define the second law as “the entropy of the universe increases during any spontaneous process” and then throw q rev /t or free energy = δg and δs at you.
Entropy is a property of thermodynamical systemsthe term entropy was introduced by rudolf clausius who named it from the greek word τρoπή, transformation he considered transfers of energy as heat and work between bodies of matter, taking temperature into account. The law of entropy, or the second law of thermodynamics, along with the first law of thermodynamics comprise the most fundamental laws of physics entropy (the subject of the second law) and energy (the subject of the first law) and there relationship are fundamental to an understanding not just of physics, but of biology, psychology, and.
