    Hi,

    I was reading about entropy, and was caught wondering if it also worked for antimatter, photons, electrons, does entropy work in dark matter too?

    Thanks,
    L.E.A.P.

    Alternate energy... or should we rather say alternate life?

    Are you interested in scientific high school projects? If you are, please contact me!

    mmm, interesting question as dark matter and thermal equilibrium dont seem to make sense. However entropy makes sense for purely gravitational systems (with tightly compacted clumps of matter having more entropy then uniform distriubutions) so perhaps it does?

    Any experts?


    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
