Phisical significance of ENTROPY

mahesh mane's picture

I got that there exist a property called ENTROPY;for which the difference in it's values at two states is (Q/T).but I can't get it's physical significance

   I know that it represents the irreversibility of the process.But it doesn't sutisfy me.So if anyone can...



You might like to take a look at the notes by Zhigang Suo posted on imechanica here where a simple explanation of entropy is given. I hope you find it useful.

hey thaks a lot for your help i think i got it lets checj out:

   The entropy value of any isolated system after any process indicates log of number of quntum states. The number of quntum states are such that they indicates the equilibrium condition of the system after the process.
