→ thermodynamic process.
It is defined by dS = dQ/T, where dS is the differential change in
entropy, dQ is the differential amount of heat introduced to the system in
a → reversible process, and T the
→ absolute temperature of the system.

and increases during → irreversible processes without ever
decreasing. According to the → second law of thermodynamics, an
→ isolated system evolves toward a state of maximum entropy.
