Descripción

"From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas or the cooling of tea, to the unfolding of a thought in our minds and even the course of life itself, everything is governed by the four Laws of Thermodynamics. These laws specify the nature of 'energy' and 'temperature', and establish the arrow of time: why things change and why death must come." Originally published as Four Laws that Drive the Universe, this topic is now brought into the Very Short Introduction series. Explaining the basis and deeper implications of each law and highlighting its relevance with everyday examples, Atkins uses the minimum of mathematics to introduce concepts such as entropy and free energy, and takes us to the brink of absolute zero of temperature, and beyond.
