time in equilibrium thermodynamics

Postby Melissa Per 2J » Sun Jan 21, 2018 11:24 pm

I have written in the margins of my notes that there is no such thing as time in equilibrium thermodynamics. I am now confused as to why it is not taken into account in any of the calculations we do. And is it only in calculations for systems in equilibrium that time is completely irrelevant?

Yes, I believe time should be included in equilibrium thermodynamics but now we are going into the realm of differential modeling, which takes into account time delays in dynamical systems. #ls30b
