- Please explain why in thermodynamics the entropy (disorder) of an object is inversely related to its temperature.
Main Question or Discussion Point
I read in a book "Quantum Space" by Jim Baggot, page 290, that the entropy of an object is inversely proportional to its temperature. (He was describing the temperature of a black hole. Does this statement only apply to black holes?) No doubt he is correct, but wouldn't an increase of energy within an object give more possible states? Some molecules within a gas could have higher velocities. The gas might expand into a larger volume.
