"Lec Last - The Second Law of Thermodynamics (cont.) and Entropy" Fundamentals of Physics (PHYS 200) The focus of the lecture is the concept of entropy. Specific examples are given to calculate the entropy change for a number of different processes. Boltzmann's microscopic formula for entropy is introduced and used to explain irreversibility. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Review of the Carnot Engine 19:18 - Chapter 2. Calculating the Entropy Change 35:34 - Chapter 3. The Second Law of Thermodynamics as a Function of Entropy 43:46 - Chapter 4. The Microscopic Basis of Entropy Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: http://open.yale.edu/courses This course was recorded in Fall 2006.
