    Don't be so hard on yourself. I always thought of you more like the crazy old uncle.

    Thank you Chet! I am a Master student in thermal engineering and I find this extremely helpful.

    I don't know about the uncle part, but....

    Many thanks for your contribution Chet, I've read many useful answers you gave here, before signing in!

    If I just could ask a thing...Your insight talks about entropy change in closed systems. However, doesn't the last example depict an isolated system?

    Isolated systems are a subset of closed systems.

    I've thought that this could be the motivation. Thanks for your confirm!
