Second law of thermodynamics
This paper presents a 2T thermodynamic cycle operating around the critical locus of ethylene. The cycle converts heat energy to work at a rate greater than the Carnot cycle. This energy conversion rate challenges the use of Carnot's thermodynamic efficiency as a foundation for the second Jaw of thermodynamics. The paper discusses the historical development of classical theory and the second law's foundation in logic.
