What is entropy?

Post  broseph on Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:17 pm

I have taken two years of chemistry, and I have been fine with this idea. Then I had to go and take a few proof based math classes, and when I look back at the topic i don't understand. What is it? Is there a simple, rigorous, and accurate definition?

What is Entropy

Post  joemark on Thu Jul 04, 2013 4:51 am

Rudolf Clausis coined this term. It is basically the thermodynamic property. If we want to calculate the total energy that cannot be used in some process like thermodynamic, then we can use the concept of Entropy.
