Second Law of Thermodynamics

irretrievable heat. This does not mean that the energy is destroyed but it means that the energy is not able to produce work. The irreversible increase of this non-disposable energy in the universe is measured by the abstract dimension that Clausius called entropy from the Greek Entrope, change. However, the equivalence can be proved through a proof. Specifically, the equivalence can be proved since any device that violates the Kelvin statement also violates the Clausius statement, and vice versa. To prove...

General Chemistry Ii - Midterm 1 Answ

standard entropy and give a reason why: 1 mole each of NO and NO2 ? ANS: Both NO and NO2 are gases under standard conditions. Each molecule of NO2 has three atoms, and each molecule of NO has two atoms. Thus, NO2 should have the larger standard molar entropy than NO. Molecules with many atoms has more variations in how it can vibrate than a molecule with fewer atoms. This means more ways to distribute energy- or greater energy dispersal at any given temperature and larger entropy. A2....

done leads to the conclusion that energy is always conserved. It is an empirical fact, but it is not an explanation. The second law of thermodynamics is extremely successful at predicting what processes are spontaneous, but it cannot explain why entropy increase causes spontaneity. Theories: 1. The theory of evolution is a theory (as opposed to a hypothesis) because it has very broad applications and explanatory power. We can explain the entire fossil record and the genetic code of all plants...

Chem- Entropy, Spontaneous Rxns

Entropy: Entropy is a measure of the disorder of a system. Entropy comes from the second law of thermodynamics, which states that all systems tend to reach a state of equilibrium. The significance of entropy is that when a spontaneous change occurs in a system, it will always be found that if the total entropy change for everything involved is calculated, a positive value will be obtained. Simply, all spontaneous changes in an isolated chemical system occur with an increase in entropy. Like enthalpy...

Entropy and San Antonio

Entropy When I woke up that Saturday morning, I knew something would go wrong. I was planning a trip to San Antonio with my best friend, Elizabeth. First, my car wouldn't start. When we finally got the car started, we noticed that the air conditioner was not working, This is a major problem, especially if you live in Texas. We decided to keep going and to just roll the windows down to get some fresh air. Not even ten minutes after doing so, it began to rain. This did not slow us down at all. When...

Isaac Asimov and Entropy

English 4 Honors March 1, 2011 Isaac Awesomov Entropy is a measure of the unavailable energy in a closed thermodynamic system that is also usually considered to be a measure of the system's disorder, that is a property of the system's state, and that varies directly with any reversible change in heat in the system and inversely with the temperature of the system (Webster). Entropy is a fundamental aspect of not only physics and its relation to thermodynamics, but also to biology and cognition...

Possibility of Equilibrium Between the Environment and the Economy - Reviewing the Entropy Law

Hubbert’s prediction that oil reserves behave in a bell curve and that the world’s oil production will peak and drop exponentially, underlines Georgescu-Roegen’s point that natural resources are indeed limited. M. Solow, acknowledged the laws of entropy (1997, p268), but neglected its relevance by stating that “these laws have no substantial consequences for economic analysis”. This, quite rightly was criticized by Herman E. Daly by asserting that these laws do not only apply to the universe as a...
