Entropy analogy

  1. May 8, 2007 #1
    if entropy were a vector, could you call q (heat flow) its direction and T (temperature) its magnitude?

    how do you cope with heat flow also having a magnitude?

    In the literature, though, entropy "current" is sometimes discussed, so look into that if you're interested.
