What is the entropy of the universe?

We use "entropy of the universe" or Suniv. as a phrase that means the sum of all the entropy. This is useful when we describe the spontaneity of a reaction - a reaction will b (MORE)

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 (MORE)

What is meant by entropy?

  Entropy is a measure of the amount of disorder a system has. More accurately the amount of work that can be extracted from a system. The more entropy a system has the le (MORE)

What does entropy measure?

Entropy is the inclination for things to increase their level of  disorder.    eg. If you buy a puzzle in a box and you shake it really hard the  pieces become more d (MORE)

Can entropy be reversed?

You've likely seen this, but: THERE IS AS YET INSUFFICIENT DATA FOR A MEANINGFUL ANSWER. We simply don't know enough about the source of energy to know. Were an absolu (MORE)

What does an encoder do?

  An encoder is something that converts information from one format, or code to another. There are a huge variety of encoders because there are a huge variety of kinds o (MORE)

What is an encoder answer?

An encoder is a digital circuit which accepts one of the inputs and converts it into BCD or Binary Coded Output. It performs the reverse function of that of a decoder.

Examples of entropy?

There are macroscopic and microscopic examples of increasing entropy, all of which are also examples of increasing disorder and randomness. Macroscopic: Watch yourself get ol (MORE)

What are encoders?

    Encoders turn readable information into a different format for example a CD track into an MP3. A decoder undoes this encoding to make the file readable, for exampl (MORE)
