Abstract Show that positive entropy is generated when two volumes of ideal gases with different initial temperatures are merged in two different ways: 1. The volumes are placed in thermal contact, but the gases remain in their original volumes. 2. The partition between the two volumes is removed and the gases mix. This problem was suggested by Julien Scordia, and is based on prob. I.4 of [1]. 2
