I need some clarification on definition of Entropy. According to the simple example of the egg in the kitchen, the entropy of the whole egg is lower than that of a cracked egg. This, it is said due to the fact that, there are more ways to be broken than a whole egg. But, if one talks of a particular Macro state, it must refer to the macro state of the ‘particular cracked egg’ – the egg cracked exactly in a specific fashion. In such a case how can it be claimed that there are more micro-states corresponding to the cracked-egg than a whole egg. Or, one could be comparing a whole egg and ‘not-whole’ egg. Then, of course there are more ways of ‘not- whole’ egg than a whole egg. Then again, we can consider an egg ‘cracked-in- a-specific-fashion’ and the one ‘not-cracked-in- that-specific-fashion’. In this case there are more possibilities of the later than the former and the later could be a whole-egg. Does it mean that, in this case the whole-egg has more entropy than the cracked one? The same could also apply to the fallen down and broken pieces of a cup – broken and scattered in that particular fashion. Obviously, I am going wrong somewhere. Please help.
