Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A a measure of a system's tendency toward disorder... Also an indicator of whether or not a process can happen spontaneously. If you are asking questions about entropy, you should probably read up on the laws of thermodynamics. The second law in particular is where entropy shines.
