Lecture 14 1 Spontaneity!(20.4-5) Remember the Zero th Law: heat flows from a warm to a cold body (spontaneously!). Consider two isolated systems A and B at different temperatures. isolated Remember what isolated means? (no heat, no matter flow) isolating barrier V A , T A V B , T B Now remove the isolating barrier between systems A and B so they are in thermal contact. V A , T A V B , T B isolated U A +U B =constant V A ,V B = constant (no work!) say T B >T A S=S A +S B

So for isolated systems in equilibrium dS=0.
