listen to the pronunciation of maxwell's demon
الإنجليزية - الإنجليزية
A hypothetical creature created for a thought experiment. Maxwell’s demon, if it existed, would act as a sort of gate guard by sorting between higher-energy molecules and lower-energy molecules within an enclosed space. Because such a sorting process would tend to decrease entropy, it would violate the second law of thermodynamics
an imaginary creature that controls a small hole in a partition that divides a chamber filled with gas into two parts and allows fast molecules to move in one direction and slow molecules to move in the other direction through the hole; this would resultin one part of the container becoming warmer and the other cooler, thus decreasing entropy and violating the second law of thermodynamics
