20.62: a) As in Example 20.10, the entropy change of the first object is ) ln( 1 1 1 T T c m and that of the second is ) ln( 2 2 2 T T c m , and so the net entropy change is as given. Neglecting heat transfer to the surroundings, , 0 ) ( ) ( , 0 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 1 = - + - = + T T c m T T c m Q Q which is the given expression. b) Solving the energy-conservation relation for T and substituting into the expression for S gives . 1 n 1 ln 2 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 1 1 - - + = T T T T c m c m c m T T c m S Differentiating with respect to T and setting the derivative equal to 0 gives - - - + = 2 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 1 ) ( 1 ) 1 )( )( ( 0 T T T T c m c m T c m c m c m T c m . This may be solved for , 2 2 1 1 2 2 2 1 1 1 c m c m T c m T c m T + + = which is the same as T when substituted into the expression representing conservation of energy. Those familiar with Lagrange multipliers can use that technique to obtain the relations

If , T T ′ < it is possible for the temperatures to approach each other while increasing the total entropy, but when , T T ′ = no further spontaneous heat exchange is possible....

    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.

    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.
