1. Development of a Simple Model to Estimate Entropy Generation of Earth

A. Ahmadi; M. A. Ehyaei

Volume 1, Issue 2 , Summer and Autumn 2020, , Pages 135-141

Abstract
  Entropy generation can be caused by the energy transfer from a high-temperature recourse to a low-temperature resource; this is defined by the second law of thermodynamics. This phenomenon can occur for the Earth by transferring the solar energy from the sun to the earth. The process of entropy generation ...  Read More
