Título Entropy, Microstates, and Probability - Interactive Lecture Demonstration Guide
Descrição This Interactive Lecture Demonstration Guide has the following goals. Students will be able to: • Explain a spontaneous process – such as air rushing in to an evacuated chamber – using particle motion at the molecular level. • Distinguish between spontaneous and non-spontaneous processes, and connect these to a probabilistic description of matter. • Explain how a large number of microstates can produce the same macro-state. • Perform calculations involving probability. • Use particle motion and probability to explain heat transfer.
