Entropy Increase as Tendency: Drive and Effector

- Pp. 93-96 (4)

Alberto Gianinetti


A useful definition of entropy is “a function of the system equilibration, stability, and inertness”, and the tendency to an overall increase of entropy, which is set forth by the second law of thermodynamics, should be meant as “the tendency to the most probable state”, that is, to a state having the highest equilibration, stability, and inertness that the system can reach. The tendency to entropy increase is driven by the probabilistic distributions of matter and energy and it is actualized by particle motion.
