### Understanding Entropy

Can someone explain why Lavelle didn't like to say define entropy as "disorder?"

### Re: Understanding Entropy

Entropy was not defined as "disorder" to avoid the negative connotation of the word. Instead entropy can be defined as the measure of randomness.

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”
