The Entropy Story so far ... Entropy is a measure of the degree of disorder of a system. The greater the disorder, the greater the amount of entropy. In nature, disordered systems are more common than ordered systems because there are many more disorderly arrangements than orderly arrangements. Entropy tends to increase with time. If the temperature is constant, the change in entropy is given by S = Q / T 7-2
The law of conservation of energy: Energy can be neither created nor destroyed.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
