The entropy-time equation

Thermodynamically isolated system


The quantitative relationship between entropy and time has lain dormant beneath static thermodynamics that does not incorporate magnitude time while predicts an entropy-time relation. Such fundamental equation has now been found for the first time at a thermodynamically isolated system.The disclosure of time in thermodynamics by means of caloric entropy reveals the connection of thermodynamics with mechanics which is properly due to mechanical work, not to scout entropy. The theoretically deduced entropy-time equation is fully upheld empirically by Newton cooling law. The integrated entropy-time function was adjusted to fulfill the necessary thermodynamical condition of an irreversible heat. This fit gives rise to a maximal entropy at finite time in a natural manner. Thermodynamical irreversibility alone accounts for attainment of thermodynamic equilibrium. Nonequilibrium by itself creates equilibrium. The fitting of the entropy-time function for irreversible heat is in agreement with the principle of minimal action.

About the Author

Francisco Ros

My name is Francisco Ros and I was born in Valencia, Spain. I am a scientist at Research Council (CSIC), Spain. I received the PhD degree in chemistry on a research work about highly chlorinated organic compounds which I carried out at Center of Investigation and Development (CSIC), Barcelona. I afterwad moved as a postdoctoral fellow to Department of Chemistry of Iowa State University, USA, where I did research in physical organic chemistry on reactions involving organic free radicals and single electron transfer between organic compounds. I presently work as a scientific staff member in Institute of Medicinal Chemistry (CSIC), Madrid, where I have developed a series of research publications entitled “Branched-Chain Organic Compunds” dealing with the synthesis and therapeutical applications of this class of compunds. Attainments in my investigations on such branched compounds are the novel employment of complex synthetic compunds as modulators of multidrug resistance in cancer and of the compunds as coadjuvants in virology. My research interests embrace the thermochemistry of compounds of therapeutical or biological interest. I have also done investigations on phase transitions in solid materials including chiral compounds and on the potential energy of cohesion of these materials. I am currently involved in theoretical aspects of thermodynamics concerning the relationship of entropy to time. I look forward to your comments about my book that deals with this entropy-time relationship in an in-depth way.
