Unformatted text preview: neous process. Eventually, the system will reach equilibrium, which will correspond to the maximum entropy. Equilibrium state of the system can be found from this maximum entropy principle. Unfortunately, very few systems of interest are isolated systems. More commonly, one deals with systems where (V,T) or (P,T) are controlled. For example, in chemistry, we’d often like to know how many moles of reactants and products we will have after a chemical reaction is over and the system has attained equilibrium. This reaction would normally be carried out in a room where both the temperature and the pressure...
