Translation of entropy in Spanish:


  • Example sentences
    • Despite the large increase in enthalpy and entropy, the free energy difference between the closed and open conformations is relatively small.
    • The enthalpy, entropy, and free energy changes in the opening reaction of each basepair are determined from the temperature dependence of the exchange rates.
    • In Chapter 3 we discussed how the thermodynamic arrow of entropy increase is a reflection of the relative probabilities of various states.
    Example sentences
    • These functions range from simple bookkeeping tasks to serious number-crunching algorithms such as deconvolution, maximum entropy, Fourier transforms and more.
    • But no serious scientist would expect that such a thing were possible, for the simple reason that it would be a violation of the fundamental principles of entropy / information theory.
    • Information, entropy, and computation become metaphors for us at a much broader level.
