### 24. 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.
