Abstract

The purpose of this reply is to provide a discussion and closure for the comment paper by Dr. Bormashenko on the present authors’ article, which discussed the application of the principle of least action in reversible thermodynamic processes and cycles. Dr. Bormashenko’s questions and misunderstandings are responded to, and the differences between the present authors’ work and Lucia’s are also presented. View Full-Text
