Homework Help: Disposing entropy

  1. Oct 13, 2008 #1

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I had two questions
    1. Why does storing data creates entropy?
    2. What is meant with disposing entropy

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    1. I thought because the multiplicity of the system increases, because the information put in the system increases.
    2. Ín my textbook, they talk about T increase bacuse of disposing of entropy.
    But why does it need to be disposed? And why does this cause a T increase?
