For example, an increase in the entropy of the system will be exactly equal to the entropy decrease of the surroundings. So the net change in the entropy of the system and its surroundings is zero.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Putting this in perspective to all the systems and environments in our universe, how is the universe always increasing in entropy?

Thanks in advance!
