# What is an example of entropy?

Answer Ice melting is a good example - energy is used to melt the ice but no work is done so it is sometimes called useless energy - check Wika Dictionary def. …Answer Take a bag of red marbles and a bag of blue marble and dump them together on a table top. You will notice that the marble mix together instead of segregating into coloured groups. This in entropy.

# What is entropy in system development?

Due to inertia and non-conflict an ineffective coordination prevails thus there will be gradual decline in the organisational health and thus entropy is triggered in the organ…isation.

# Example of entropy?

It's not much use to give "examples of entropy"; it is an abstract concept that you must try to understand as such. Anyway, any matter that has heat energy, has entropy.

# How do you reverse entropy?

There is as yet insufficient data for a meaningful answer

# What is entropy of a Hard -boiling an egg?

Entropy is a thermodynamic term. Re the hard boiling of an egg: You are going to a more "ordered" state , i.e., positive entropy. However, entropy in this case is overwhelme…d by the -∆H which is the negative heat provided by the proteins hydrogen bonding. Thus, the energy driving force is the important term and not the entropy in this case.

# Can entropy be negative?

I am not sure whether you refer to delta S (change in entropy) or entropy itself. So I'll answer for both. For S (entropy), which is defined by the function S=kln(omega), wher…e k is Boltzmann's constant and omega is the number of microstates corresponding to a given state, the answer is no. Why? Omega (the number of microstates possible for a certain state) can never be smaller than one. Since Boltzmann's constant is a positive number and ln(omega) will always be greater or equal to zero, entropy will never be negative. However, when calculating delta S (change in entropy in a thermodynamic process), yes entropy can be negative. Remember entropy is essentially the state of disorder of a system since (on a macroscopic level) the natural progression of the world is from order to disorder. (For example, there are more ways to have a messy room than to have an impeccable, neat room). For the change in entropy to be negative just think of it in terms of the room analogy: initially, it was messy, but then it got neater. The state of disorder of things was lessened. Applying this to a chemistry example: CO 2 (g)--> CO 2 (s) An element/compound in a gaseous state always has a greater state of entropy (gaseous molecules are more free to move). However, an element/compound in a solid state has a smaller state of entropy because molecules in a solid are less free to move. Smaller state of entropy - greater state of entropy=negative entropy

# What is entropy in cell respiration?

# What are the entropy and enthalpy?

Enthalpy refers to the total energy content of the system. It is represented in thermodynamics as H=E+PV, where H refers to the total enthalpy of the system, E refers to the t…otal internal energy of the system, P referes to the pressure of the system and V refers to the volume of the system. Any change in any of these thermodynamic variables will result in change in enthalpy of the system. Entropy, as my friend had mentioned earlier, is a term for disorder in a system and that the overall entropy in a system always increases.

# What does entropy have to do with anything?

Entropy has to do with everything. The Laws of thermodynamics govern everything in the known universe.

# Why does entropy do?

# Why entropy is not disorder?

In my opinion entropy not only is disorder but also it attempt to make a new order by distribution of energy in universe.I want to prove this idea by a simple example. In my… view order is finding my socks easily and in the minimum of time every morning.If I want to reach to this aim opposite of of entropy trend I should be bought a hug number of socks that I can find my socks even with blindfolded. A house full of socks how can remember order?This manner even reduce probability of finding socks for others and destroy the social order.Entropy is preference everybody to somebody.In this view entropy is a trend to social justice. The above discussion of entropy is mostly an example of the extension of the concept of entropy from thermodynamics to analogous situations elsewhere. In statistical mechanics, the notions of order and disorder were introduced into the concept of entropy. From statistical mechanics it is possible to define and derive equations that exactly reproduce the thermodynamic equations for entropy and show that those equations match the values from traditional thermodynamics - hence they ARE the same function. Various thermodynamic processes now can be reduced to a description of the states of order of the initial systems, and therefore entropy becomes an expression of disorder or randomness. This idea of entropy being the same as disorder or randomness has been applied to describe phenomena at the macroscopic level. Unfortunately, the analogs are not perfect and not all the mathematics that apply to entropy in thermodynamics are valid for the macroscopic phenomena where the term is so loosely applied.
