Physics 7A DLM 17 Overview CG 4.3 Relation of Entropy to Microstates Act-4.3.1 Continued–Quick Follow-Up: FNT 4.3-4 Two Dice (No Activity Sheet) (~10 min) Learning Goals: Making sure students fully understand the meaning of states, microstates, and the probability of getting a particular state. Act-4.3.2 Large Numbers, Coming to Equilibrium (~40 min) Learning Goals: Understand how the most probable macroscopic equilibrium state becomes well defined when the number of particles becomes large. Act-4.3.3 Constraints, Accessible Microstates, Entropy FNT 4.3-6 (~40 min) Learning Goals: Understand how entropy, S, is related to the total number of accessible microstates, ± • Understand how ± will change when constraints on the physical system are changed. CG 4.4 Entropy and the 2 nd Law of Thermodynamics Act-4.4.1 Entropy from a Thermodynamic Perspective (~40 min) Learning Goals: Understand how entropy, S, is related to transfer of energy as heat, Q Understand how the 2nd law of thermodynamics applies to heat transfer processes. Develop better understanding of what the inequality means in the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
