Sal provides two definitions for entropy: the thermodynamic definition and the mathematical definition. Entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics are the focuses of this chemistry video. The law states that the change in entropy in the universe, when any process is undergone, is always greater than, or equal to, zero.
