Entropy in Physics

Postby Kennedy Moore 1D » Sat Jan 20, 2018 5:31 pm

In my physics class, we are discussing entropy and manipulating the ideal gas law on a macro scale. Is there any part of entropy that is specific to chemistry and may not apply in macro life or vice versa?

Thermodynamics is universal and is used and applied in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biological systems, oceanography, climatology, weather, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, etc.

In Friday's class I briefly discussed the 1st law of thermodynamics (conservation of energy) and the astrophysic's topic which considers the universe an isolated system and therefore constant energy (or as I discussed in class constant mass-energy).
