Remember that the thermodynamic entropy is a property we can measure in the laboratory. It is a routine analysis, simply involving heating a sample of known weight and measuring the energy input (say with a differential scanning calorimeter), then extrapolating back to absolute zero (where entropy is zero).

Good point. So, Kairosfocus, which has more thermodynamic order; a lump of graphite, or a living human brain?



Warning!
Don't try this at home.
