A segunda lei da termodinâmica

By Martina Costa Reis and Adalberto Bono Maurizio Sacchi Bassi


Considering intrinsic characteristics of the system exclusively, both statistical and information theory interpretations of the second law are used to provide more comprehensive meanings for the concepts of entropy, temperature, and Helmholtz and Gibbs energies. The coherence of Clausius inequality to these concepts is emphasized. The aim of this work is to re-discuss the second law of thermodynamics in accordance to homogeneous processes thermodynamics, a temporal science which is the very special oversimplification of continuum mechanics for spatially constant intensive properties

Topics: entropy, temperature, Clausius inequality, Chemistry, QD1-999, Science, Q
