How many possible arrangements are there for a deck of 52 playing cards? ( For simplicity, consider only the order of the cards, not whether they are turned upside down) Answer: Since there are 52 cards, each card has 52 possiblilites so 52*52=2,704. is this right? Suppose you start with a sorted deck and shuffle it repeatly, so that all arrangements become accessible. How much entropy do you create in the process? Express answer as pure number (neglecting the factor k) and the SI units. Answer: Stotal=k ln omega(total)= ln(2,704)=7.902 7.902 is the amount of entropy created. Is this entropy significat compared to the entropy associated with arranging thermal energy among the molecules in the cards? answer: I don't know?
