what is entropy

there are many ways to explain entropy. frequently it is defined as a measure of randomness. but a more accurate way is to define it as a measure of the effectiveness or usefulness of a particular quantity of energy. in other words, the fact that the entropy of the Universe is steadily increasing, means that its total energy is becoming less useful: eventually, this will lead to the "heat death of the Universe"
