What does the second law of thermodynamics lead us to conclude? 1. The total energy of the universe is constant. 2. Disorder in the universe is increasing with the passage of...
The second law of thermodynamics asserts that for a thermodynamically defined process actually to transpire, the amount of the entropies of the participating bodies must increase. In an idealized limiting case, that of a reversible process, this sum
