The Size of Phase Space 8/12/22

Phase space is the size of every possible distribution of a system in the order of the atoms, the velocities of the atoms (the kinetic energy distribution), and the distribution of electron excited states.  It’s every possible combination of every possible distribution and energies of the entire system.

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
