Too often thermodynamics is based upon the shuffling of partial derivatives, which is not necessarily embedded in profound logic

A New Thermodynamics

Page 1 of Various Blogs/Discussion Pages Titles

6) Carnot cycle: a Rethink
Like the second law, entropy is poorly understood. Not only does it require clarity, but we also must learn its limitations
3) Entropy: A mathematical contrivance
The second law wrongly used to explain so much. The reality is that it is limited to systems that simply do not exist here on Earth, and is certainly not applicable to any useful system.
2) Second law: A poorly conceived blunder

Note: My blogs DO NOT necessarily adhere to traditionally accepted interpretations

7) Negative work: New conceptualization
By Kent W. Mayhew
8) Kinetic theory: New insights
9)Walls in thermodynamics: New thoughts

1) Lost Work: What exactly is it?
 More often then not lost work is the energy lost by an expanding/useful system into the surrounding atmosphere.
4) Internal energy: Wow how silly of us
The internal energy of a system is misunderstood. It also shows mankind's tendancy to complicate the simple.
5) The differential shuffle:An illogical dance
We shall discuss why currently accepted kinetic theory is
problematic and how to fix it. It is in three parts.
We shall introduce you to the concept of negative work that
being the displacement of our atmosphere by a volume of nothing, against a gravity
We shall discuss the misundertstandings associated with the 19th century idealistic cycle that being the Carnot cycle
We shall discuss how walls influence what we witness thus putting limitations upon kinetic theory, ideal gas law etc

10) Dynamic interpretation of the Second Law
To bad Maxwell and or Clausius did not realize why "Lost Work" occurs in expanding systems

12) Probabilities
13) Maxwell's demon
14) Bernoulli's wing: A twist in thought
We shall discuss Maxwell's demon, and it limitations in
context of walls and our new thermodyanmic perspective
We shall discuss the misundertstandings associated
with the 20th century great
We shall discuss how an planes wing works, in a manner
that is somewhat different than what others claim
11) Implications to Statistical thermodynamics
15) Thermodynamics & Circular logic
Currently part of statistical, but should become its own blog
We shall discuss the fact that probabilities give results
and not reasons
16) Isobaric vs isometric specific heat
We shall explain the difference bewteen isobaric
and isometric specific heats of gases in terms of work
17) Boltzmann's so-called constant (k)
18) Work vs Energy
We discuss why a gaseous sytem can only use 2/3 of
its total energy to perform work.
We will show that Boltzmann's constant is not universal
