Spring Entropy 3/23/23

Work requires energy, so in essence, they are using energy to undo the entropy caused by the water, energy in the form of petrol fuel and food which the construction workers eat to give themselves energy.  The byproducts of both of these is carbon dioxide and other gases which, in turn, increase the entropy of the surroundings as they work. 


Parking Entropy 6/20/20

people believe that the law says that as a law, entropy cannot decrease, but clearly this isn’t true. The entropy of a system, such as the parking lot, can decrease by doing work on the system as it is being done here. In this process, the entropy of the surroundings must increase more than the entropy of the system is decreased to make up for the decrease of entropy of the system
