In the stationary state, a thermodynamic system
a)needs energy to keep a high level of ordering
b)must be isolated
c)cannot do work
d)does not change at all
e)cannot produce entropy

I am struggling to understand what would be the correct answer. Could someone please help? Thanks!

Can you measure thermodynamics in an open system or must it be a closed system?

Hi thanks a lot!
So you measure thermodynamics in a closed system I think

Yes, B.

Thunk about why the other answers aren't correct, too.

Thanks! So I did a bit of elimination here. Entropy always increases I think so not e and I don’t think it is d because I think stationary state does not necessarily mean that nothing is changing but some things are kept constant and not everything. I don’t think I make sense:/ Iam bad at thermodynamics I guess

You do make sense. And your reasoning is good here.
