Playing with Entropy

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time

Playing with Entropy

Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Sharpen your understanding of entropy by examining different macroscopic systems and asking, which has higher entropy and which has lower entropy? Also evaluate James Clerk Maxwell’s famous thought experiment about a demon who seemingly defies the principle that entropy always increases.
