Orders Of Magnitude (data)
... bits (32 exbibytes) 3.5 × 1020 bits – increase in information capacity when 1 Joule of energy is added to a heat-bath at 300 K (27 °C) 269 590,295,810,358,705 ... bits (128 zebibytes) 1025 1.1×1025 bits – entropy increase of 1 mole (18.02 g) of water, on vaporizing at 100 °C at standard pressure equivalent to an average of 18.90 bits per. 1058 ~ 1058 bits – thermodynamic entropy of the sun (about 30 bits per proton, plus 10 bits per electron) ...
The Fluctuation Theorem and Loschmidt's Paradox
... The second law of thermodynamics, which predicts that the entropy of an isolated system out of equilibrium should tend to increase rather than decrease or stay constant, stands in apparent contradiction ... It is often argued that for every forward trajectory in which entropy increases, there exists a time reversed anti trajectory where entropy decreases, thus if one picks an initial state ... with the second law of thermodynamics which predicts that entropy tends to increase ...
Holographic Principle - Black Hole Entropy
... An object with entropy is microscopically random, like a hot gas ... A known configuration of classical fields has zero entropy there is nothing random about electric and magnetic fields, or gravitational waves ... black holes are exact solutions of Einstein's equations, they were thought not to have any entropy either ...

Famous quotes containing the words increase and/or entropy:

    The whole value of history, of biography, is to increase my self-trust, by demonstrating what man can be and do.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Just as the constant increase of entropy is the basic law of the universe, so it is the basic law of life to be ever more highly structured and to struggle against entropy.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
