00:00:03.240 --> 00:00:05.379 A:middle L:90%
All right, So in order to answer this question
2
00:00:05.650 --> 00:00:06.990 A:middle L:90%
, let's start with the last part of it.
3
00:00:07.820 --> 00:00:11.210 A:middle L:90%
How does this thought process this thought experiment illustrate the
4
00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:14.490 A:middle L:90%
second law of thermodynamics. Well, the second law
5
00:00:14.490 --> 00:00:17.760 A:middle L:90%
simply states that the total entropy of an isolated system
6
00:00:18.230 --> 00:00:22.309 A:middle L:90%
naturally moves toward a state of greater disorder. This
7
00:00:22.309 --> 00:00:28.160 A:middle L:90%
basically means that the greater the variability, the greater
8
00:00:28.160 --> 00:00:30.870 A:middle L:90%
the entropy, which we're gonna label within us.
9
00:00:32.490 --> 00:00:35.600 A:middle L:90%
In the case of rolling one million dice, there
10
00:00:35.600 --> 00:00:38.719 A:middle L:90%
is no event such as rolling a one or two
11
00:00:38.719 --> 00:00:43.630 A:middle L:90%
or three that is more likely than another. But
12
00:00:43.630 --> 00:00:48.090 A:middle L:90%
isis six sides, you are just as likely to
13
00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:51.090 A:middle L:90%
roll it one as you are to roll a four
14
00:00:51.159 --> 00:00:54.090 A:middle L:90%
as you are to roll it to. The other
15
00:00:54.090 --> 00:00:57.500 A:middle L:90%
part is this is that, um, these events
16
00:00:57.500 --> 00:01:03.000 A:middle L:90%
are also mutually exclusive, which means that you are
17
00:01:03.299 --> 00:01:04.290 A:middle L:90%
once you roll one dice, it's not going to
18
00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:10.150 A:middle L:90%
affect the role of another dice. In this case
19
00:01:10.150 --> 00:01:11.780 A:middle L:90%
, you have one million dice. One role isn't
20
00:01:11.780 --> 00:01:19.420 A:middle L:90%
going to affect any of the 999,999 rules. To
21
00:01:19.420 --> 00:01:22.340 A:middle L:90%
answer the first part of this question, you can't
22
00:01:22.340 --> 00:01:26.319 A:middle L:90%
really calculate an average because there is so much variability
23
00:01:26.319 --> 00:01:32.420 A:middle L:90%
in the situation and because all of the outcomes are
24
00:01:32.430 --> 00:01:34.560 A:middle L:90%
equally likely to happen, there's no real way of
25
00:01:34.569 --> 00:01:40.299 A:middle L:90%
calculating without actually being given an outcome. One possible
26
00:01:40.299 --> 00:01:45.430 A:middle L:90%
outcome chance for the second part, and therefore the
27
00:01:45.430 --> 00:01:48.129 A:middle L:90%
third part. In order to some to one million
28
00:01:48.909 --> 00:01:51.870 A:middle L:90%
, all one million dice must roll up onto a
29
00:01:51.870 --> 00:01:55.750 A:middle L:90%
one after being shaken. Similarly, to add up
30
00:01:55.760 --> 00:01:57.799 A:middle L:90%
to six million all the dice Muslims on a six
31
00:01:57.799 --> 00:02:02.269 A:middle L:90%
, regardless of what number that they start on in
32
00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:05.950 A:middle L:90%
basic terms, The second law tells you that order
33
00:02:05.950 --> 00:02:09.229 A:middle L:90%
isn't favored since it implies less variability or entropy.
34
00:02:10.490 --> 00:02:13.960 A:middle L:90%
Therefore, in a system like this, or in
35
00:02:13.960 --> 00:02:17.409 A:middle L:90%
any system that tends toward greater disorder, these two
36
00:02:17.409 --> 00:02:23.210 A:middle L:90%
events are highly unlikely because there isn't much variability in
37
00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:23.550 A:middle L:90%
these specific outcomes.
