Why is the entropy of the universe greater than zero for a spontaneous reaction?

### Re: Entropy of the Universe

The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of the universe always increases for a spontaneous process.

Return to “Third Law of Thermodynamics (For a Unique Ground State (W=1): S -> 0 as T -> 0) and Calculations Using Boltzmann Equation for Entropy”
