Entropy

In physics, the concept of entropy is used as a measure of "disorder".

 


Explanation

Different gases will mix still further over time. Also in your own room disorder will just increase, and it never happens that all of a sudden everything is neatly in place.

 


Additional information

According to the Israeli chemist Arieh Ben-Naim, entropy can be better described as missing information.
