Reversibility and the Laws of Physics
Lecture no. 6 from the course: Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time
Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Isaac Newton’s laws of physics are fully reversible; particles can move forward or backward in time without any inconsistency. But this is not our experience in the world, where the arrow of time is fundamentally connected to irreversible processes and the increase in entropy.
