A typical depiction of a low entropy compared to a high entropy state, in terms of gravity. [3] |

In defining entropy values to different molecules, the procedure used involves assigning simple component atoms and molecules arbitrary (often zero value) measures of free energy and enthalpy, at their standard conditions, and using this basis to make thermodynamic tables of entropy and enthalpy values for different reactions, and using reaction algebra to assign entropy values to more complex structures.

Big bang theory

In cosmology, the universe prior to the inception of the big bang is often theorized to have been in a low entropy state, about the size of a golf ball, in its initial state some 13.7 billion years ago, as current science understands things. [2]
