MSE 3050, Phase Diagrams and Kinetics, Leonid Zhigilei 2 nd Law of Thermodynamics A system left to itself will either 1. Remains in the same state indefinitely (system is in equilibrium ). The system will move from the equilibrium state only if acted on by some external impact. 2. Will move, of its own accord, to some other state.
