States the second law of thermodynamics

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the universe tends toward high entropy. If so, what happens when there is nothing left to be disordered? How can matter…

Entropy and the second law of thermodynamics

This is a sequel to the author s book entitled “Entropy Demystified” (Published by World Scientific, 2007). The aim is essentially the same as that of the previous…

Second law of thermodynamics simple explanation

There is an intuitive explanation. First, remember that the second law of thermodynamics is an expression of the universal principle of dissipation of kinetic and…

Second law of thermodynamics states

Here is a wordy topic which also happens to be rich with physics and foundational in almost every aspect of engineering. The 2nd law of thermodynamics states that…

Second law thermodynamics

In seeming defiance of the second law of thermodynamics, nature is filled with examples of order emerging from chaos. A new theoretical framework resolves the apparent…

Second Laws of thermodynamics

Creationists will just not let go of an argument, no matter how many times it is pointed out to them that their argument is unsound. They simply find new twists…

Second law thermodynamics evolution

A common argument against evolution is that the theory contradicts the Second Law of Thermodynamics that claims disorder, or entropy, always increases or stays the…

Second law of thermodynamics examples

Examples of The Second Law of Thermodynamics or How Energy Flows from Useful to Not-So Useful The Unstoppable Tendency of Energy We ve said it often in this website:…

Second law of thermodynamics for kids

We re going to talk about the second law of thermodynamics here. Scientists use a word called entropy to describe the degree of freedom ( randomness ) in a system…

1ST and second Laws of thermodynamics

Household heating and cooling systems follow the laws of thermodynamics. The laws of thermodynamics dictate energy behavior, for example, how and why heat, which…

Evolution and the second law of thermodynamics

I probably won t get an answer to this one. but entropy says the universe is breaking down evolution says the universe is getting better! Please explain this. This…
