(¦ Indicates a review question, which means it requires only a basic understanding of the material to answer. Questions without this designation typically require integrating or extending the concepts presented thus far.) 41. In a galaxy far, far away, a process occurs that results in a decrease in the entropy of a system by 8 J/K; that is, S = —8 J/K. According the entropy form of the second law of thermodynamics, which of the following (there may be more than one) is a possible value for the entropy change + S. For the rest of the universe? Explain your choice(s). (a) -8J/K (b) 0 J/K (c) +8 J/K (d) +16 J/K.
