Entropy and Stability

Postby Tara_Shooshani_3N » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:06 pm

Is high entropy more stable than low entropy?

For example, which is more stable: a system with entropy 10 or entropy 20?

When discussing the relationship between entropy in regards to the stability of a system, when a maximum heat source is reached, the point can be considered "stable." The state of maximum thermodynamic stability is reached when entropy is maximized and enthalpy is maximized.
