‘The second law of thermodynamics leads tothe definition of ‘new propery called entropy, which is « quantitative mea- sure of miewoscopie disorder for a system. Any quantity ‘whose cyclic imepral is zero is a propery, and enttopy is sefined as 2 Sor ‘The inequality part of the Clusius inequality combined with the definition of entropy yields an inequality known as the increase of entropy principle, expressed as Ss 20 ‘whore Sigg iS the entropy generated during the process. Entropy change fs caused by heat transfer, mass flow, and lmoveribliios. Heat transfer to a system increases the entropy, and heat transfer from a system decreases it. The cllect of ireversibilties is always to increase the entropy ‘The entropy-change and isentropic relations fora process can be summarized as follows: 1.

Most steady-low devices operate under adiabatic condi- tions. and the ideal process for these devices is the isentropic process.
