Entropy

by landonlehman

This is a good discussion that attempts to remove some of the confusion and disorder surrounding the concept of entropy.  Supposedly Arnold Sommerfeld once said: “Thermodynamics is a funny subject. The first time you go through it, you don’t understand it at all. The second time you go through it, you think you understand it, except for one or two small points. The third time you go through it, you know you don’t understand it, but by that time you are so used to it, it doesn’t bother you any more.”
