Define 2nd law of thermodynamics in two ways
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Define the second law of thermodynamics in two different ways and show these two ways are equivalent.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
Could anyone give me any pointers as to what this might mean? I know what the 2nd law of thermodynamics states, but how would I define it in two different ways?
