Comment: There should be a "no star" category for this inexcusable treatment of entropy. The section on entropy is the most incredible mess of garbage, misinformation, and error that I have ever seen in 70 years! I can't imagine that such antique/obsolete/unscientific trash would be used in the US -- or cited in Merlot. The ONLY modern treatment of entropy is that which is written by Stephen Lower -- and cited here.

Technical Remarks:

NO chemistry text in the US has ANY such trash -- "entropy as a quantity of heat"!! "entropy flows...."!!! "Entropy is measured in Ct, Carnots"!!!!
