Second law of thermodynamics

  1. Dec 21, 2009 #1
    Says, in a closed system disorder is always increasing, more or less.

    But with gravitational forces, matters are sticking together--creating order.

    Thus the law=invalid

    Can I get my Noble?

    Why do you not apply your theory to say, a collapsing cloud of hydrogen ? Maybe you will find free energy coming out !

    Since you only asked one question, maybe.

    I'm not sure what a Noble is so you may get one, but you certainly won't recieve a Nobel of any sort for the statements you made.

    You should be careful about claiming a law is invalid when you haven't understood the law yet.
    The effect that you mention transforms potential energy into very disorder kinetic energy.

    This is rather silly.

    The fact that you have an external source of energy via the gravitational potential implies automatically that this is NOT a closed system. If you write the partition function without including such possible energy state, then your function is an incomplete description of the system.

    Someone already locked this, but I had to bring it to everyone's attention: Nothing more classic than a crackpot asking for a "Noble" prize!
