Which thermodynamics concepts confuse or confused you the most?

Quote Quote by Curl View Post
Applying thermodynamics to dynamic processes - the confusion is whether to think of the substance as a rarefied gas or as a continuum.

Also non-equilibrium thermodynamics

Entropy was the only thing that confused me. Unfortunately, effectively everything we did was just variants on the second law of thermodynamics ie the first law made sense, the second one was much, much less intuitive.
What level in your education were/are you at when encountering these difficulties? And which degree programs are you in? Level and background content definitely influence these things.
