WHO KILLED PHYSICS: CLAUSIUS OR EINSTEIN?
« Reply #50 on: 24/02/2007 15:58:32 »
I generally don't bother to come in and contradict the loonies (trolls) who post rubbish like Pentcho Valev (and certain other notably loquacious contributors to this site) does.  There are too many good and genuine questions that it is worthwhile trying to answer.   Looking at his writings it seems that he copies them from one science notice board to another because some of the just don't answer any comments that others make.  My experience with more than ten years involvement in discussion pages is generally to ignore the loonies because it is easy to tell them as Ophiolite wisely says.

SO far none of the post any questions on second law of thermodynamics.
What exactly does it state?
What is its form in an infinite space?
Is it possible in principle to create a closed system?
What is meant ever increasing surface area of Universe?
What is meant Information Entorpy?
What is the difference between Gravity and Gravitational?

What is Information?

The speed of light in a vacuum is constant.  Is this statement true?  Yes in the way, the statement is phrased.  ‘Speed’ is made up of two components distance and time, both of which Relativity tells us are variable in length (that is, both the meter and second are variable in length).  If ‘time were a constant’ (which it is not) then the speed of light would be variable.

This begs the question why does light have a very fast but finite speed.  We know that a gravity well does affect light.  If ‘time were a constant’ then it would slow the speed of light down but as time is variable, the speed of light remains constant and time dilates.

Everywhere within the universe there is a ‘gravitational field’ therefore time is being dilated everywhere.  Hypothetically, if you remove the gravitational field then a photon can travel at it’s natural speed which is instantaneous. 

I could elaborate on this but then it would be new physics.

Well actually your concepts are good.BUT Rudolph's law is not meaning less.Rudolph was the first person to introduce the concept of entropy on the basis of which new laws of thermodynamics have been based.Rudolph gave a concept that removed the contradiction that was thought to have been ex-sisting between carnot's engine and laws of conservation of energy.As far as Einstein is concerned, speed of light should be constant.None of the two scientists destroyed Physics.
