    constant P is called an isobaric _ entropy in a closed system never decreases, stays the same or increases. entropy in an open system ( contact with surroundings) \[\Delta S_{tot} = \Delta S + \Delta S_{sur}>0\] the total entropy of any system plus that of surroundings increase as a result of any natural process. page 7 http://www.uccs.edu/Documents/rtirado/Ch%2015%20The%20Laws%20of%20Thermodynamics.pdf
