Asked to my sister on a chemistry test was the usual:
Which of the following represent an increase in the entropy of the
substance (more than one may need to picked):
a. Melting ice.
b. Sublimating Carbon Dioxide
c. Spilling milk onto a table
Now, when she asked the question to me, I said that A and B were both
representative of increasing entropy, as had she. BUT, according to her
teacher, spilling milk onto a table increases the entropy.
Are we going crazy? How does that increase the entropy (I suppose in a
very loose sense it does increase the amount of disorder in the universe.)
